Editorial Reviews

"The writing has an innocent charm that suits the story well. . . . This text doesn't flinch from the hardships of the Great Depression, nor does it sentimentalize them. Diane Palmisciano's lively black-and-white artwork appears throughout the book, highlighting the warmth and good humor of the text. An appealing beginning chapter book, particularly for doll fans." -Booklist"A wholesome and nostalgic period piece that's a moving affirmation of good will to all." -Kirkus Reviews
