Read full description of the books Miss Happiness and Miss Flower:I'm not even a doll person but I immediately fell in love with this book! Even now I'm hard pressed to say who captivated me more, the adorable little dolls named in the title who speak (only to the reader of course!) throughout this children's-book-for-adults or lonely Nora suddenly finding herself a stranger in her aunt's home in cold England after growing up wild and warm in India. And then there were her cousins, staunch Tom who coaxes and challenges Nora right from the start, wise and kind Anne or devilish, little Belinda whose daily delight lies in vexing her shyer relative. Other characters include a school chum and an eccentric bookshop owner as well as Nora's aunt and uncle.
How Nora learns to feel at home in her new country comes through the fascinating process of creating a proper Japanese home for Miss Happiness and Miss Flower. Many of the intricacies of detail were lost on me, but were charming none the less.
As I was reading, I kept thinking of so many doll-y and dollhouse types who would recognize familiar territory in all the tiny perfections so painstakingly described by the author.
A treat! Very soon I'd like to read The Dolls' House by the same author. Going through some of my daughter's old books which I don't remember. Such fun!
