Overview

Mr. and Mrs. Doll and their six children, Nurse and the old Cook all lived in a house which had no front and belonged to Susan. Susan was just an ordinary-sized little girl with taffy-colored pigtails. But to the Dolls she was a very Big, very Wonderful, very Important Person. The Dolls could neither speak nor move without Susan's help. But there was one short night in every year when they needed no help, that Wonderful Night when all Dolls come alive and can speak. How they came to life after seven long weeks of not being able to speak or move, only to find the house hung with cobwebs, how they worked the whole Wonderful Night, how they found "Little Susan", how they proved to themselves that there is more to Christmas than presents, makes an exciting story full of ups and downs scaled to dollhouse proportions, with glimpses of the Christmas miracle that can happen anywhere -- even in a dollhouse. A different sort of Christmas story, one to be enjoyed any time of the year by the whole family.

This was my favorite book when I was a little girl and the story is still charming today. The story about the family who live in the doll house and who come to life on Christmas Eve will appeal to any little girl who believes in the magic and mystery of Christmas.
