Doll-E 1.0 is a fun mix of the technology of today’s world mixed with the classic toys we had from our world. In Doll-E 1.0, you meet a little girl named Charlotte, and she is a technology guru. She can program, she can code, she can do anything when it comes to technology. She is a true mastermind of the technology power that kids have at their fingertips today!
Charlotte parent’s decided to surprise her with a new gift. Thinking that she is getting a new piece of tech, Charlotte is both shocked and confused with she receives a doll. No matter what Charlotte tries, she just doesn’t seem to be able to figure out how to play with a normal doll.
Unfortunately, Charlotte will not have a chance to figure out how to play with her normal doll. Her puppy got a hold of her new toy and completely tore it apart. Instead of being beat, Charlotte decided to create Doll-E 1.0. In true Charlotte fashion, she adds her signature technology to create a doll of epic proportion!
I thought Doll-E 1.0 was cute and fresh. I loved how Shanda McCloskey played on the technological realities of today mixed with the fun twist of the plot. Your children may likely miss some of the brilliance of the story. My advice is to really pay attention to the background of the illustrations in this story. More details and plot secrets are present for those that look closely!
