Rose and Lila are chagrined at being sent to a babysitter (actually a day care center) one day while their grandmother is off doing something mysterious. They discover a cute baby doll at the day care, which turns out to be the childhood doll of Ms. Jill, the day care owner. Marissa's (the doll's) face has been marked on, and her hair is falling out. Worst of all, she can no longer talk as she once could. But Ms. Jill still loves her. Rose and Lila convince their grandmother to repair the doll. While she's being repaired, Marissa the doll tells her story in a sweet childlike voice that is innocent and just perfect for a babydoll. (I got so involved with her and worried about her safety at one point that I almost cried, believe it or not.)
All of these books are well written and we learn something about history and doll repairing. This book did not disappoint. We loved it. And we like the new illustrations on the cover. Can't wait for the next one.
Aunt Alice bought Jill Marissa at a baby doll store. But Jill's mother doesn't like dolls! Will she make Jill give Marissa to Cousin Ellen?
