Fantastic book. Hard pictorial glossy cover. Tons of personal, intimate photographs (over 500) adequate text without the journalistic spin of the previous biography. Reads like an historical scrapbook by the author who was Dare's godchild and was closely involved with Dare's life and those around her. Brook describes the magical world and experiences she had as both a child and later an adult companion, and finally a caregiver in Dare's last years of life. The insight she had as a participant and observer of Dare's world makes this a most unique bio/autobiography. If you ever loved The Lonely Doll books, this is an absolute must. Beside photos of Dare, Brook and their families, there are many, many photos of Edith, The Lonely Doll including many unpublished, and behind the scenes. Did you know, that (according to Brook) Dare died with Edith and Little Bear in her arms. Now if that doesn't tear you up.. nothing will! For The Lonely Doll lover, collector, or who was thrilled reading the books as a child, this book is like the opening of King Tuts tomb. As you peer inside Dare Wright and the Lonely Doll, you will remark like archaeologist Howard Carter did when he broke through the sealed tomb for the first time,"I see wonderous things! "
