Doctor Squash the Doll Doctorby Margaret Wise Brown
Synopses & Reviews
From the Golden Books archives comes a Margaret Wise Brown gem, with fresh new illustrations!
Mother, Mother, I am sick
Call for the Doctor quick quick quick!
When tiny toys of all kinds cry, Doctor Squash comes running! Always ready to mend and soothe, to pat and prescribe, Doctor Squash helps each doll stay "fit as a fiddle and right as rain." And when the good doctor himself falls ill, you can be sure there will be a crackerjack team of dolls-turned-doctors ready to rush to his aid!
Beautifully reillustrated by David Hitch, this whimsical Golden Book from the 1950s will enchant a new generation.
Doctor Squash has always taken care of the sick and injured dolls, until, one day, when Doctor Squash himself gets sick, all the dolls get together to help him get well.
Dr. Squash takes care of the little Wooden Soldier and other dolls when they get sick, and they do the same for him.
