  • It was exactly what I wanted. After all theses years I was able to replace something I thought was lost forever. I will be able to share this with grand kids when I get some. Thank you.

  • Miss the old red book cover, but the story is still the same.

  • Favorite childhood book

  • The story of the doll 'Rose' finding a home is simple, but the characters are incredibly versatile. This children's book will hold the attention of readers any age.

    Rose, the wooden doll living in an attic and forgotten by humans, is not lonely at all. She has her mice friends who go everywhere and bring her news, spiders who are friendly most of the time, and the old spider who is a philosopher because he has read all the books in the attic; he is not always chipper, the rumor being he had been disappointed in love. Then she has the bumble bee, the spotted butterfly, and the swallow that stop by and bring news. Later in the story, Rose has the mouse-friend who suggests a dress for her, the spiders who spin the dress, the flowers that give her make-up and color for her face, the moths that lend her some velvet off their wings for her cloak, the foxglove and lady-slipper that send her gloves and shoes, and the swallow that informs her of a possible new girl/owner.

    Rose wants a girl to love her and give her attention. And she finds one!

    May be a simple story, but the author has subtle messages throughout, well worth reading many times- the children found her to be an 'old thing (human insensitivity?)', Rose wondered if she had become old and ugly (concern about aging?), 'perhaps the whole world had changed during all those years she lived in the attic' (generational differences?), 'dolls were no longer as they used to be when she was first made (things change over time?) 'perhaps children no longer played with dolls at all' (generation gap?), 'the old spider had been disappointed in love' (a possible reality in life?), 'supper bell rang' (that is new for a modern reader 73 years after this book was written) and' when one does a good action, there are those who see to it that it isn't wasted' (natural law of life?). Many messages to think about. Or one can think this is just a children's story.

    The illustrations by the author's daughter are exquisite!

  • This author reveals a special affinity for the unspoken needs and desires of toys, considering the subtle distinctions about what makes them Real. In this very short book, charmingly illustrated by the author's daughter, we meet an old-fashioned wooden doll who has been forgotten for decades in the attic--with only mice and spiders for company. Her dream of course is to be reunited with a little girl who will love her. When a new family moves in downstairs she is hopeful for happiness, but the sisters reject her instantly because she is so plain, dirty and undressed. Are first appearances really that important in our minds? Are children really so heartless? A quaint delight for children of all ages.

  • This is a melancholy story of a once-beloved doll, abandoned in an attic for years. Though she has many friends in the mice and spiders, she yearns for a child to love her again. When new children finally arrive after much anticipation, they are nasty and make fun of the shabby little doll. It is heartbreaking.

    But she is dearly loved by the attic residents, and the mice figure out a way to help make her dream come true. The story radiates with the deep love of friends.

    Bianco wrote this book 5 years after publication of her classic book, ~The Velveteen Rabbit: or, How Toys Become Real~. The 1920's era illustrations by Margery's daughter Pamela are done in a charming art deco style that brings another dimension to the sweet romanticism of the story. This story will also touch adults who have had their hearts broken and been sustained by devoted friends.

  • This amazing story with subtle messages for people of all ages is a timeless one. The book was popular in its early days, but today’s children and adults may not even know of its existence. The essence of the tale expands to all areas of life. It is about loneliness, disappointment, rejection, insensitivity, need for love, learning, friendships, generational issues, generation gap, helpfulness, and love. The 1920s illustrations are beautiful.

  • If you have a little girl, you must consider getting her this book. I remember reading it when I was about 8 and being absolutely mesmerized by the story and illustrations. It is about an old doll who lived in an attic for many years. She had animal and insect friends, but wanted children to play with her,too. Eventually some kids come, but they reject her due to her ugliness. The doll's animal friends help make her more presentable. Eventually a little girl wants her.

    My copy is from 1953 and is illustrated by Pamela Bianco. I don't know what the illustrations are like in this amazon copy. If amazon runs out, you can still find it on ebay and I am sure used book sales, which is where my grandma bought my copy from.
