I agree with the reviewer who said this book was a disappointment. The editors should be smacked for including all of those horrid b&w photos. As someone who was looking for help identifying Nancy Ann dolls and could have really used this book, it was a great disappointment because of the photos.

Marjorie Miller's book is the best book available on Nancy Ann Storybook Dolls (made mostly in the 1930's - 50's). It contains many pictures to help the reader identify dolls, and it includes an extensive history of the dolls and doll company. The book describes the Muffie dolls, Lori Ann, Style Show, and the ever popular 5 1/5 - 6 1/2 inch bisque and hard plastic dolls, among others.

After seeing the colorful cover, I was shocked to find page after page of fuzzy, black and white photos inside this book. How wonderful it would have been to have seen some of these beautiful dolls in color or at least in well-lighted pictures! The author obviously seems to prefer the older bisque dolls, which are covered in most of the book. A shorter section is devoted to the hard plastics, which many collectors love. Does anyone really want to see so many pages of patterns for Nancy Ann doll furniture? I would have rather read about or seen dolls!

Any lover/collector of Nancy Ann Storybook dolls will enjoy this book. Unfortunately, not all of the dolls are included. I was overjoyed to find a few dolls from my collection for whom I did not have names, but there were more that I did not find...
Not sure whether the definitive reference book for these lovely little dolls will ever be written, but until then, this one will suffice!

The author (who is now deceased) wrote this book with the information she had collected. Since then, it has been further researched, new facts were collected, new pictures taken, and now Elaine Pardee's "Encyclopedia of Nancy Ann Storybook Dolls" is the result of this research. This book was wonderful when it was published, and I still love it.

I felt the book was incomplete, it only had two pages of color pictures and the description led me to believe it would have more of a complete listing and photos of the complete line.

Considering how long ago the dolls were produced this is a helpful book for those trying to identify their dolls. It is true that 95% of the pictures are in black & white which makes it much more difficult to recognize but it is better then no picture. Also there are several mistakes in the discriptions of some dolls and wrong accessories on some of the dolls. Lets just hope that a new and improved version (with color photos) will soon be available.

THIS IS A GREAT BOOK ON NANCY ANN DOLLS. IT HAS A LOT OF PICTURES. THE ONLY THING IS THE PICTURES ARE IN BLACK AND WHITE. IT WOULD BE A LOT BETTER IF THE PICTURES WERE IN COLOR. IT WOULD BE EASIER TO FIND THE DOLL YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. WOULD BE GREAT IF SOMEONE WOULD WRITE AND UPDATE THIS BOOK ON NANCY ANNY STORYBOOK DOLLS WITH COLOR PICTURES. SEEMS A SHAME THAT THE TOY COMPANIES CAN'T BRING THESE DOLLS BACK FOR US TO BUY. THE LITTLE GIRLS MIGHT NOT LIKE THEM, BUT I AM SURE US ADULTS WOULD LOVE TO HAVE SOME NEW NANCY ANN'S. I KNOW I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE SOME MYSELF.
