King of the Dollhouse
This faithful new edition of King of the Dollhouse is certain to charm new audiences with its sharp and independent main character and themes of powerful women and magical personal adventure.
A tiny scurrying noise! Then… something races out of a shadowy corner of Ellie’s room, gallops up to the dollhouse, and stops short. “Whoa,” calls the smallest sort of voice, and suddenly there is the Queen, gallant and beautiful, on mouseback.
Ellie’s mom is busy writing a book, so Ellie figures she’ll have to use her imagination to entertain herself for a while. Then, alone in her room, from inside the elaborate dollhouse she hasn’t played with in some time, she hears a tiny, exasperated voice.
Could it be?
One thing’s for certain: Ellie’s world just got a lot bigger… or is it smaller?
