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).

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.

Hilda and her Doll.

Hilda and her Doll.

Hilda played happily in her Greneda, West Indies home, unaware that she was soon to be sent thousands of miles away, to France, to school. Her father felt the experience of "finding her level" would be good for her character, but for a long time she was miserable at school. Her classmates teased her for the wonderful gift her nurse had given her, a beautiful handmade West Indian doll. The international flavour of this book keeps it from being a Sunday School tract.
