They come from the tropics and the tundra, the desert and the mountains, from times of war and times of peace.

What they wear tells us of their homes. Their faces are calm, fierce, beautiful, wistful, ugly, inscrutable. Dolls have been cherished throughout time by children all around the world — children who have carried them, dressed them, and whispered secrets to them.With haunting photographs and a text that speaks poignantly of the time when children must leave their dolls behind, this book captures the uncanny and enduring comfort of dolls.Michelle Markel wrote this book out of a deep affection for dolls and for folk art.

She was given the idea for her book by “a little green and purple doll, an alebrije, in a glass case at a Mexican folk art exhibit.” She believes that dolls have the power to lead children into worlds not their own.
