Tottie is a loving little wooden doll who lives with her family in a shoebox. The doll family are owned by two sisters, Emily and Charlotte, and are very happy, except for one thing: they long for a proper home. To their delight, their wish comes true when Emily and Charlotte fix up a Victorian dolls' house - just for them. It's perfect. But then a new arrival starts to wreak havoc in the dolls' house. For Marchpane might be a wonderfully beautiful doll, but she is also terribly cruel. And she always gets her own way . . .Gloriously illustrated by Jane Ray, and with a ribbon marker and a foreword by Jacqueline Wilson, this beautiful hardback Macmillan Classics edition of Rumer Godden's The Dolls' House, which was first published in 1947, is a truly special gift to treasure.
