In this sequel to "Caitlin's Holiday" (1990), more magic is afoot as Jodi, a doll mistreated by her owner, Jennifer, comes to life just like Caitlin's strong-willed doll, Holiday. When Jodi's fancy clothes begin appearing in Caitlin's denim bag, Caitlin assumes that Holiday has stolen them, since she is always begging for stylish outfits. Holiday--who has toned down her act and seems much less bossy here--is hurt that Caitlin would think such a thing and decides to prove her innocence. In a hilarious conclusion, the dolls appear to Jennifer (in what she thinks is a dream), attempting to frighten her. Unexpected interference from Jennifer's bratty little brothers and wacky cat, Zorro, adds further to the mayhem. Finally, all is resolved, and Jennifer, scared of the doll, decides to give Jodi to Caitlin. Griffith also suggests an explanation for the dolls' animation--a magic cloak that gets passed along to a third friend. Although it will have most appeal to fans of the earlier book, this is an engaging fantasy that will attract imaginative readers everywhere.
