I read this book many times as a child. It's a nice book about learning to love what you have and realizing that what you thought you wanted was really just smoke and mirrors.

This now hard to find picture book was my favorite book as a child (early '70s), not least because the hero and I share a first name and a similarity of appearance. Today it's not politically correct, but it's still true. Martha Alexander's pictures remain irresistible, as does the relationship of a girl with her doll.

My favourite library book as a child. I must have checked this out from the Melbourne Public Library dozens of times.

My FAVORITE book as a child and I own it! Found it several years ago online through a library in Wooster, OH. I purchased it for $65. But to me it's priceless!

If this is the book I remember from when I was a kid, it is a lovely book about a little girl named Kate and her doll named Elizabeth. It is the reason I named my doll Kate.
