The Surprise Doll
60th Anniversary Edition
by Morrell Gipson, illustrated by Steffie Lerch

For more than half a century children have been captivated with the story of Mary and her dolls. Mary's father was a sea captain who took long trips across the ocean, bringing back a doll from each journey. Soon Mary had six dolls and wished for a seventh one to become her "Sunday" doll. But Mary's father said six dolls was enough for any girl, so she set off to visit the Dollmaker, and, oh, was she in for a surprise! Original 46-page format.

Read about Mr. Bear Squash-You-All-Flat, also by Morrell Gipson.
