Now in paperback, Marion Dane Bauer's tale of friendship, family, and fitting in, which recalls The Doll People, Rumer Godden, and Hitty, Her First Hundred Years.
Regina is a princess. Her hair is gold. Her gown is pink. She's a three-and-one-quarter-inch-tall doll. Rose is not a princess or a doll. She's a real girl with dark curly hair and wild ways. Dishes seem to leap out her hands. Pencils snap. Her homework papers blow away in the wind. Her mother insists she's too thoughtless to have such a fragile doll, but Rose doesn't care.
Then something magical happens—Regina comes to life! For such a tiny thing, she's a bossy spitfire. Still Rose is worried. She knows Regina is as delicate as ever. What happens if you break your best friend?
