I know I can always rely on a Rumer Godden book to give me a good story about our little friends.
Just great descriptive writing of a make-believe world that almost seems real, set with those lovely illustrations that help tell the story beautifully!
Definitely a recommended book for younger girls who still love to play, or for adults/young adults who want to reminisce on their childhoods.
I have always loved "dolls are really alive" stories. Rumer Godden is so good with words, which only added to my pleasure at reading the book. I highly recommend it.Published 4 months ago by Marilyn
