My December Tasha Tudor book review is The Dolls' Christmas and of course, one of my favorite books! I love all the illustrations...lots and lots and lots to enjoy! There are 32 pages to drool over.
It was first published in 1950 by Oxford University Press NY. It was republished in 1976 by Random House, 1999 by Simon and Schuster and it is now an Ebook also by Simon and Schuster with audio, put out in 2012.
The story is about two little dolls, Sethany Ann and Nicey Melinda who plan a Christmas Day dinner party and marionette show for their dolly friends. Invitations are made and sent by Tasha's famous Sparrow Post. The two little girls help plan the day even tiny cookies are baked....oh so Tasahish!
The dolls live in Pumpkin House and here's a picture of it. It's quite large like the doll house that Tasha Tudor had in her home. The lucky little girls who owned it and the lucky little dolls who lived in it!
If you are a dolly person, you MUST have this book. It is so charming and you will enjoy it year after year.
