“The writing has an innocent charm that suits the story well. . . . This text doesn't flinch from the hardships of the Great Depression, nor does it sentimentalize them. Diane Palmisciano's lively black-and-white artwork appears throughout the book, highlighting the warmth and good humor of the text. An appealing beginning chapter book, particularly for doll fans.” —Booklist

“A wholesome and nostalgic period piece that's a moving affirmation of good will to all.” —Kirkus Reviews
