Since it was first published in 1957, The Lonely Doll® has established itself as a unique children’s classic. Through innovative photography, author Dare Wright brought the world of a doll named “Edith” and two teddy bears named “Mr. Bear” and “Little Bear”, vividly to life. Edith was a Series 109 Italian Lenci doll from her childhood, and German Shucco and Steiff brand teddy bears. With simple poses and wonderful expression, the atmospheric black & white photographs told an unforgettable story of friendship. The book was widely read throughout the 1960’s and is now being enjoyed by its third generation of readers.
