Chapter One

With light pink skin and shiny blue eyes, my doll Sophie is my only doll.

She is my best friend. I feed her patiently with a small spoon a few times each day. She can't eat too much at one time, so I divide her food into small portions.

I like to rock Sophie on my lap and sing songs to her. But most of all, I love talking to her.

Sophie loves listening to me. She never interrupts me and she always agrees with me. I tell Sophie everything that happens at school. I tell her what I learned and I ask her to help me with my homework.

When I have a secret to share, I whisper it into her ear.

She always understands when I explain that I made my mother angry even though I didn't mean to.

But most of all, Sophie loves to hear about my dreams.

Sophie doesn't have clothes. I wrap her in colorful pieces of cloth that I find around the house. I wrap them around her waist and shoulders and tie them with rubber bands and safety pins.

I tie many bright ribbons around her head and I imagine that she has long, soft hair.

The only things that Sophie can do by herself is open and close her eyes. She has soft eyelids with long eye lashes. Whenever she sits or stands up she opens her eyes. When I put her down to rest, her eyes close.
