Cassie | 18 comments Hello all! I'm a children's librarian, and normally I'm pretty good at finding the titles my young patrons ask for, but today I got stumped, and I'm hoping someone here might be able to help.

Here's what is remembered about the book:

It has an orange cover

It is about a woman with curly red hair who steals children and puts them in a dollhouse. She can taken them out of the house by lifting the lid.

One boy named Kyle is kidnapped while out riding his bike. She tricks him by telling him she has a flat tire.

One girl named Nina is also taken with her dog.

No idea on the year, sadly, since I wasn't the one who read it, but the girl was around ten, so I'd imagine the book isn't too old.

Thanks in advance!

Polly (pollya) | 121 comments You're welcome! I remembered it right away by the plot, but I had to go through my Read list to find the title!
