The Secret Life of the Lonely Doll: The Search for Dare Wright by Jean Nathan

The Secret Life of the Lonely Doll: The Search for Dare Wright - Jean Nathan

The somewhat sad story of the author of a number of classic children's books. Interesting read, though I wasn't sure what to expect. The author's personal details at the end were rather unnecessary I thought.
