As a child this was my favorite book to check out of the library. It is a collection of doll recipes made from ingredients found outside: dirt, mud, leaves, dandelion fluff. I loved it and I always remember the pages were stained with others' attempts at doll cookery.
I had forgotten all about it until recently when sitting down to play in the dirt with my daughter. I did not bother to see if the local library still carried this, I simply went straight to Amazon. The receipts and pictures are all still there, just as Marjorie Winslow created it.
I can't wait until Tessa is old enough to read and make these timeless recipes on her own. I hope this copy gets very dirty.
