Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiny perfect masterpiece Rumer Godden's celebrated 'novel in miniature', a dainty confection that nevertheless resonates with truth and conviction. Any little girl who's ever 'played Barbies' will understand immediately -- and be enchanted. (And when they start clamouring for a sequel, please note that Godden's 'Doll Series' also includes such mini-classics as 'Impunity Jane', 'Candy Floss' and 'The Story of Holly and Ivy'.)
