Once there was a little doll. Her name was Edith. She lived in a nice house and had everything she neeed except somebody to play with. She was very lonely! Then one morning Edith looked into the garden and there stood two bears! Since it was first published in 1957, The Lonely Doll has established itself as a unique children's classic. Through innovative photography, Dare Wright brings the world of dolls to life and entertains us with much more than just a story. The star of the show, Edith, was a childhood friend of Dare Wright's. With help from her brother in selecting suitable bear companions, Ms. Wright created an entire family. Using simple poses and wonderful expressions, she brought her cast of characters to life.
