This is a photo of Dare Wright the author of The Lonely Doll Learns a Lesson. She wrote a number of books after this fashion. I used to enjoy looking at this photo. You can see that the page is pretty scruffy as is the book itself below. I may have loved the book to death as it charmed me for several years.
I see in my mother's printing that Santa gave me the book for Christmas 1961.
After the colorful cover, the pages become black and white. I thought it would be fun if I had my Mr. Bear read a few pages.
In the process of getting out The Lonely Doll..., I found the little Golden Book about The Paper Doll Wedding. Perhaps it was meant to complement *the Paper Dolls I featured last year.*
So there's my nod to whimsy and nostalgia for this week. ☺
Have a happy one!
