When toys need a little (or a lot of!) TLC, they head to the Doll Hospital in this endearing picture book in the tradition of Doc McStuffins. Don’t worry, toys, Dr. Pegs will have you feeling better in no time!
“It’s not only the patients, but the doctor and nurses who are dolls, too.... Collage and digital illustrations have a charming retro look with a palette that relies on red, green, yellow, and brown... the text is cumulative in a satisfying way... the instinct to care for others is important to nurture.”
– Kirkus Reviews, April 2018
“What starts out as a quiet day at the Doll Hospital quickly becomes a hectic one as patient after patient arrives with various problems that need fixing.... Written in a cumulative manner with bright, colorful digital illustrations rendered in a simple color palette, this is a sweet story that will capture the hearts of little ones with their own favorite dolls.”
