Marvelous!

You always know you're in for a magical, whimsical treat when reading something by Margaret Mahy, one of New Zealand's most best-loved children's authors. "The Five Sisters" is no exception, recounting the marvellous adventures of five paper dolls with linked hands.

On a hot summer day Sally entreats her Nana for a story, but instead watches as she folds a piece of paper and draws a doll with a crooked smile and strong running shoes called Alpha. But before the rest of the sisters can be coloured in, a kingfisher swoops down and snatches them up while Sally and her Nana are fetching lemonade.

The adventures that follow involve a near run-in with a lawnmower, an evil magician in the guise of a china pig, a playful breeze, a career as a bookmark, and several attempts to reach an island that's filled with storybook characters. As they fall into the hands of other people, the sisters each get a face and name of their own, until they're finally a complete set of unique paper dolls.

It's a poignant, thought-provoking book, which actually reminded me of a Hayao Miyazaki film: one of the gentler ones like Ponyo or Kiki's Delivery Service. The dolls experience life in all its beauty and danger, and many of Mahy's favourite themes pop up, specifically the importance of stories and the interconnectedness of the world.

Illustrations are provided by Patricia MacCarthy, who goes for realism in her sketches of nature and human beings, while retaining the amateurish artwork of the dolls themselves.

As with all the best fairy tales, it eventually comes full-circle, making it a perfect read for children aged seven to ten. It may even inspire them to make some paper dolls of their own.

Out of all the books I've read by Margaret Mahy this is my favorite, The Five Sisters. The story starts with Sally's nana cuting a row of five paper dolls. She picks up a pencil and draws the first face. But before she can finish the rest of the faces, the five sisters are of to their journey. Saved by winds, soaked by water, and almost burned by fire, they never stumbled in their search for a mysterious island on the edge of the sea. As you can see the five sisters is a magical fantasy. I assure you that while your reading this story you willl have laughter, wonder,and adventure in you. If you are looking for an enjoyable book, The Five Sisters is the one you should read.

I have loved this book for years. Read it many years ago to my oldest daughter and son when they were little and now I'm rereading it to my son (now age 11) and our little daughter (age 8). It's one of the best read aloud books I've found and we've been reading nonstop for more than 10 years.

Five paper-chain dolls - initially with only Alpha, the first, drawn in - have adventures, and eventually all five sister personalities emerge through the artistry of various people over the years. This is a magical tale, though some of the language is a bit off and reads like vocabulary builders - all the synonyms for "said," for example ("declared," "cried," "agreed") - which slows the fairy-tale momentum. But this is a different kind of doll story, full of adventure and imagination, and each of the five paper dolls has her own strong personality. I am one of four sisters close in age, and I do love a charming sister story!

It sis a wonderufl book. The pictures are really interesting and the wordds are very descriptive.I like the way the authour sends the five sisters into an adventure from evil pig magicians to mighty whirlwinds to burning fire and finally to the island where they finally stopped holding hands. I also liked the way the gave each sister a special characteristic. Alpha is adventurous, Cathabelle is literate, Elodie is represenatitive of sadness and joy, Icasia is very intelligent, and Zamira is the clown. I thik that this book is good for kids all ages.

This is a book that a friend of mine was reading and said it was a really good book and that I should read it. So I read it and loved it. This book is about a chain of paper dolls that are hooked together [you know like a set of things where you cut out one design and unfold it and you have that design repeated but the hands in our case are hooked together.]Well a girl's grandma makes her set but they are doll's and the girl draw's one's fetures and does'n get the chance to finish them [by the way there is five dolls hint hint] anyway every person that gets one of the dolls puts there own personalty and feelings at that time into the five dolls or sisters so that they are all differant and I can't tell you any more or it well ruin the story.
My husband is not an avid reader, and usually doesn't willingly do the nightly read alouds with our 6 year old daughter. I was busy one night and asked him if he could read to her. He has read to her every night since, and even a few mornings before school. I think secretly he really likes this book. I know she does and has even made her own "five sisters" dolls with the help of her daddy!
