Amazon Description:

In a classic storyteller’s voice, Newbery Honor recipient Marion Dane Bauer tells a tale of friendship, family, and fitting in that recalls The Doll People, Rumer Godden, and Hitty, Her First Hundred Years.Rose is a wild child. She doesn’t care what her mother or teacher or schoolmates say—she does what she wants. When she finds a delicate china doll in the attic, she takes it. Then the doll comes to life in her hand. She’s loud, obnoxious, selfishly bossy, and claims that she’s a princess and Rose is her servant. But she’s also tiny and fragile. She needs Rose to keep her safe. And maybe Rose needs Princess Regina, too.
