    This book was stupid and racist, but interesting enough to avoid the dreaded single star Still, I don t know how it won a Newbery Honor Let me explain.The book is about a doll family that crashed into an island Most of the book everyone is just trying to find each other since they all got scattered to different parts of the island The adventures are somewhat fun, and the author makes a fun time out of the differences between dolls and humans.Mr and Mrs Doll are stupid they often act like This book was stupid and racist, but interesting enough to avoid the dreaded single star Still, I don t know how it won a Newbery Honor Let me explain.The book is about a doll family that crashed into an island Most of the book everyone is just trying to find each other since they all got scattered to different parts of the island The adventures are somewhat fun, and the author makes a fun time out of the differences between dolls and humans.Mr and Mrs Doll are stupid they often act like kids And the author is often degrading to the reader, treating them like they are stupid I think she expects those that are reading this to be at about a kindergarten level or lower That s how she treats the reader.Also, they have a maid Naturally, she is black Naturally, the things that she wants most in this life are a soap box so she can make her...

    This book was so adorable It defintiely reminded me of when I was growing up and had my own doll house to play with I kept feeling that throughout the whole story that there really was a child playing with the dolls and that this child had a really good imagination While I know that Elizabeth never actually got her dolls and doll house, I felt like a child was playing with them while they were on the island I loved reading th...

    This delightful book belonged to my mother Recommended for those who enjoy doll stories or, like Wendy, are reading the Newbery Honor books While some object to the depiction of the Doll family s cook, I do not think that should detract from enjoyment of the Dolls adventures on their desert island.

    The paeans of praise on the back cover might lead you to think you re holding the preeminent children s book of the 20th c Because the idea of a shipwrecked dollhouse is intriguing, the execution is done fairly well, and the descriptions are very lush, I could give it 4 stars 1 if the author didn t patronize her child readers when speaking to them directly not a tactic that I enjoy , 2 if I wasassured that the author had a good command of the knowledge she espouses in the footnotes an The paeans of praise on the back cover might lead you to think you re holding the preeminent children s book of the 20th c Because the idea of a shipwrecked dollhouse is intriguing, the execution is done fairly well, and the descript...

    Three stars because it is loads better than Appleby Capple, but not because I really loved it I actually rather liked the first half, but the second half really dragged The Dolls were all quite silly, but there were some entertaining moments Once again, however, Ms Parrish has some cultural issues The cook, Dinah, who is of course black, is poorly drawn ...

    I thoroughly enjoyed The Floating Island though I do have to count it as one of the strangest books I have ever read It s basically a retelling of Swiss Family Robinson but from the point of view of a ship wrecked doll house family Anne Parrish included also did the illustrations for the book though she credits most of them to Mr Doll My son is enthralled with these illustrations, especially the one of the owl I m thinking of scanning the owl illustration and printing it out for his wall I thoroughly enjoyed The Floating Island though I do have to count it as one of the strangest books I have ever read It s basically a retelling of Swiss Family Robinson but from the point of view of a ship wrecked doll house family Anne Parrish included also did the illustrations for the book though she credits most of them to Mr Doll My son is enthralled with these illustrations, especially the one of the owl I m thinking of sc...

    from The New York Times The book is not only amusing but beautifully written the descriptions of the various forms of tropical life glow with light and color In her unique use of frequent footnotes in which she puts things she wants her readers to know but which do not belong in the Doll s story, the author has found a way of seeming to talk directly to her child audience. I agree that the descriptions were lovely, but nothing distracts meor turns me off a book faster than frequent f from The New York Times The book is not only amusing but beautifully written the descriptions of the various form...

    This is a 1930 pick from my Newbery collection I found it to be a charming little story with qualifications that I would want to discuss with a child aimed at youngish children Its tone makes me think of a fun story hour time with such choices as Peter Pan completely different plot, of course.This book is quite dated, though, and contains white patronizing attitudes toward black house servants Toward the end it goes so far as to hint at Jim Crow beliefs about some races being equal with m This is a 1930 pick from my Newbery collection I found i...
