The Doll in Dimity.

A big story in a tiny book. The no-nonsense Doll in Dimity arrives to cure Mabel May of her dreadful treatment of her dolls. First she wakes Mabel up and makes her clean and mend her many abandoned dolls and stitch their clothes. Then with a firm grip she steers Mabel through the streets, followed by a parade of dolls in search of poor children who will love them more. Needless to say, Mabel May reforms and learns to love. (19th c dolls like wax and wax over composition mentioned).
