323T: Wise Dad Comforts Heartbroken Girl Who Was Denied Doll

I’m looking for a children’s book. I think the title may be “The Pinks” but I don’t know the author. It’s about a girl who is saving money for a doll in a store window. Before she can buy the doll, a rich girl from her school buys her. The girl is heartbroken and her dad says some wise things. The dad is a truck driver and he likes music. He says something like “strife makes good art”.  The book was probably written in the late 90’s or early 2000’s.

Thank you for your help!
