The Very Little Princess: Rose’s Story

By: Marion Dane Bauer
illustrated by: Elizabeth Sayles



What would you do with a doll that talked to you? What if she turned out to be a demanding princess?  Rose finds a china doll buried in the bottom of a trunk in the attic.  When the doll comes to life in her hand, Princess Regina is as surprised as Rose is. At first enamored with her new talking friend, Rose takes Regina on lots of adventures. Before long though, Regina is left behind in odd places.  Rose is never quite able to figure out the secret of how the doll “wakes up” and “goes to sleep.” She is especially surprised when she finds out that her brother Sam already knows about Princess Regina and she remembers him!  Sam finds a new home for the princess where she can be happy forever.
