Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now in paperback, Marion Dane Bauer's tale of friendship, family, and fitting in, which recalls The Doll People, Rumer Godden, and Hitty, Her First Hundred Years.

Regina is a princess. Her hair is gold. Her gown is pink. She's a three-and-one-quarter-inch-tall doll. Rose is not a princess or a doll. She's a real girl with dark curly hair and wild ways. Dishes seem to leap out her hands. Pencils snap. Her homework papers blow away in the wind. Her mother insists she's too thoughtless to have such a fragile doll, but Rose doesn't care.

Then something magical happens—Regina comes to life! For such a tiny thing, she's a bossy spitfire. Still Rose is worried. She knows Regina is as delicate as ever. What happens if you break your best friend?

Synopsis:

Regina is only 3-1/4 inches tall, but she knows from the moment she wakes up in her dollhouse bed that she is a princess. Why else would she have such a lovely pink gown? Why else would she have such golden hair and flawless skin? And why else would she have a four-foot, curly-haired human creature to wait on her? Meanwhile Zoey, that four-foot, curly-haired creature, has always dreamed that someday one of her dolls would come alive. But in her dreams, the doll never ordered her around. The doll didn't call her a servant. And the doll was a whole lot nicer

In a classic storyteller's voice, Marion Dane Bauer tells an exquisite tale of friendship, family, and loss, laced with humor and joy.

From the Hardcover edition.
