Read full description of the books:
Love it! A wonderful story about a wonderful doll. I love how the "moral of the story" is handled, that Dulcy isn't made into a typical spoiled brat but that her nature of finding it "hard to be satisfied with Things as They Are" combined with her imagination do run away with her and lead her into troubles for awhile. The resolution is realistic and satisfying. I think many children (and adults, if they are honest with themselves) could relate. The Caldecott-winning illustrations are lovely and both the illustrations and descriptions of the dolls are enchanting.
"Don't grown-ups have dreams?" asked Dulcy.
"Oh, yes," her mother said. "Of course they do. But they know the difference between what is true and what is not. They keep the dream glowing like a little fire at which they can warm their hearts."
Books like this are good for warming hearts, too ;-)

Read information about the authorMcGinley was educated at the University of Southern California and at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. After receiving her diploma in 1927, she taught for a year in Ogden and then at a junior high school in New Rochelle, New York. Once she had begun to establish a reputation for herself as a writer, McGinley gave up teaching and moved to New York City, where she held various jobs. She married Charles Hayden in 1937, and the couple moved to Larchmont, New York. The suburban landscape and culture of her new home was to provide the subject matter of much of McGinley's work.
McGinley was elected to the National Academy of Arts and Letters in 1955. She was the first writer to win the Pulitzer for her light verse collection, Times Three: Selected Verse from Three Decades with Seventy New Poems (1960).
