Big Susan

Amazon.com Rating:

Mr. and Mrs. Doll, 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.

Still, there was one short night in every year when they needed no help from Susan - that Wonderful Night when all Dolls come alive and can speak.

An exciting story full of ups and downs scaled to dollhouse proportions, full of sense and nonsense, fantasy and truth, with glimpses of the Christmas miracle that can happen anywhere - even in a dollhouse. A different sort of Christmas book, one that will be enjoyed at any time of the year and by the whole family.

Description

About the Author

Elizabeth Orton Jones, nicknamed Twig more than fifty years ago, was born on June 25, 1910 in Highland Park, Illinois... Twig's childhood dolls and dollhouse were memorialized in Big Susan; these dolls, their furniture and a replica of her dollhouse are on display in the Highland Park Illinois Historical Society. The miniature living room furniture and rug were handmade by Twig's Grandmother Orton. The original dollhouse was purchased secondhand for seven dollars by Twig's mother, Jessie Orton Jones, as a gift for her young daughter. It was given away when Twig was a grown woman; being seven and a half feet long it took up too much space in the attic. Many years later Twig's physician, Dr. Robert Wellwood, built the replica dollhouse by taking measurements from the illustrations in Big Susan.
