Description
When the dollmaker creates Zigzag from scraps, she promises him, Some child will love you. This gives the strange-looking doll hope. But the other dolls and stuffed animals in the shop don't want such an ugly toy around. They force Zigzag to leave. Clinging to the promise that a child will someday love him, little Zigzag sets out to find a home.
