Paper Dolls, The

Synopsis:
When a little girl cuts out a string of paper dolls she takes them by the hand and together they go on a fantastical adventure whirling through their home and garden. Ticky, Tacky, Jackie the Backie, Jim with two noses and Jo with the bow fly through time and tear across worlds of fun and excitement. They face the jurassic clutches of a toy dinosaur and the snapping jaws of the oven-glove crocodile, and then a very real boy with very real scissors threatens to snip their adventure short. . .

Notes:
Based on the book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Rebecca Cobb. - See more at: http://www.littleangeltheatre.com/whats-on/the-paper-dolls/#sthash.bYIENlEq.dpuf
