From Rumer Godden, one of the foremost authors of the 20th century, and illustrated by two-time Caldecott Honor recipient Tasha Tudor, comes a heartwarming tale filled with imagination and creativity that is ideal for any girl who has ever loved a doll so much that it has become real to her. For Tottie Plantaganet, a little wooden doll, belonging to Emily and Charlotte Dane is wonderful. The only thing missing is a dollhouse that Tottie and her family could call their very own. But when the dollhouse finally does arrive, Tottie's problems really begin. That dreadful doll Marchpane comes to live with them, disrupting the harmony of the Plantaganet family with her lies and conceited way. Will Tottie ever be able to call the dollhouse home? An ALA Notable Book "For little girls who love dolls, women who remember dollhouse days, and literary critics who can recognize a masterpiece."--"The New York Times" Rumer Godden is the author of numerous books for children and adults, including "The Story of Holly and Ivy," illustrated by Barbara Cooney, and the bestseller "The Black Narcissus." Tasha Tudor has written and illustrated many books for children, including "1 is One" and" Mother Goose," both Caldecott Honor books.
THE BOOK ITSELF IS A WONDERFUL STORY FOR YOUNG CHILDREN AND AS AN ADULT I ENJOYED IT'S HUMOR AND THE FACT THAT THE DOLLS ARE GIVEN HUMAN EMOTIONS.
THE BOOK ITSELF ARRIVED RIGHT ON TIME AND WAS IN THE SAME CONDITION THAT WAS DESCRIBED BY THE OWNER. OVER ALL i WAS VERY PLEASED WITH MY PURCHASE.

Really sweet book
If you love dolls and dollhouses, this is your book. A rich detailing of the inner lives of dolls who have feelings and can communicate with each other about their hopes and fears. I read this when I was a girl and I have never been able to give away any of my dolls! A really sweet dear book. I was really happy to reread it again.
