I read this children’s book in the 1960’s. It contained photographs, not illustrations, and featured a stuffed bear, not plush, a doll with long blonde hair and a kitten. I think there is a scene in a barber shop where the doll’s hair is cut and I also seem to recall a ball of yarn being involved. The book was large format and I believe it was in color. The bear was one of those that had movable mechanical limbs. The doll was also mechanical in that her arms and legs could be positioned. She reminds me of one of the early talking dolls from that era that were about two feet tall.
Anthology of monsters or horror. One of the first stories was about a boy and his sister (or baby-sitter?), and the boy has an ugly doll with a red yarn string as a mouth. I think the yarn doll has a wire in the arm, and it scratches the girl, and she thinks it did it on purpose.
At the end of the story, the boy is wearing pajamas that look like those of the doll, and the boy starts to smile, and his smile stretches out into a red yard mouth.
I get the creeps just describing it again! Probably from the 1970’s. My memory is that it was illustrated, and hardcover.
Looking for an illustrated book about a Christmas Dinner for Dollhouse dolls–probably written in 1950’s. Not the one by Tasha Tudor. Think jacket was tan- probably 6″‘ by 6″ approx. I remember a specific line they had “a real brussels sprout”.
I am looking for a children’s book that I read when I was in grade 3 in 1955 in Toronto. C. 1953? American? It was a small short picture book/easy reader chapters 5.5″x5.5″, black and white illustrations and hardcover.
In the attic, in a trunk there is a doll (old) who wishes that a little girl will find her and play with her. Emily? is playing one day and wanders up to the attic of her house and discovers a small trunk. I can still feel the hope and excitement of the doll (Henrietta?). Emily opens the trunk to reveal a beautiful doll with a complete wardrobe of clothes and a parasol.
Thank you so much for searching for this book for me.
p.s. I named my daughter Emily after the little girl in this book!
