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.

The Tale of Two Bad Mice

The Tale of Two Bad Mice

My favorite Beatrix Potter as a child, the awful china food, the daring of those mice when the feather bolster broke, Hunka Munka arriving to clean once a week forever! These older copies with the nice cover plates are still plentiful, but hard to identify online. Note: This book has been sold.

The Doll and Her Friends.

The Doll and Her Friends.

"a word in favor of that good old-fashioned plaything, the Doll, which one sometimes hears decried by sensible people who have no children of their own." As the doll narrator passes from a careless, loving daughter of an elegant household, to a careful mother in a hardworking poor family, to a lively Baby, she tries at all times to be useful to her child and to accept her aging gracefully. A charming book, sometimes incorrectly attributed to Richard Horne (Mrs. Fairstar) because it was referred to as a "companion piece" in an early publisher's catalogue.
