One of my favourite books to get out from the library over 30 years ago. I was so pleased to find a copy being sold off by my local library a couple of years ago (the same edition even) - can't believe no-one wants to read it any more.
How many times did I check this book out of the library? I have the edition pictured here, but would love the one from my childhood. I prefer its illustrations.
The gorgeous doll with the pink tutu and the inclusion of a spoiled rich girl make this another Rumer Godden classic.
Another classic doll book from Rumer Godden about the doll in the pink tutu who lives at the fair.
