Dolls in Literature: The Lonely Doll by Dare Wright
Another childhood favorite dolly read of mine is this book by Dare Wright. There are other books in this series. One thing that was so unique and captivating to a child in the 1970s was that the illustrations are photographs. That was not very typical in picture books in that era, from what I remember anyway. Edith, the main character dolly, has some bear friends and engages in various adventures with them throughout the series. According to Wikipedia, this book was out of print for quite a while before being reissued by Houghton Mifflin in 1998 and by Barnes and Noble for the Nook e-reader in 2012. I don't actually remember a whole lot about the plot. I may have to hunt a copy of this down or get it on my Nook. Did any of you read this when you were little?
