William's Dollby Charlotte Zolotow, William Pene Du Bois, William Pene du Bois
William wants a doll - to hug, to feed, to tuck in, and kiss goodnight. "Don't be a creep," says his brother. "Sissy, sissy," chants the boy next door. His father buys him trains and a basketball - but not the doll that William really wants. Then one day, someone comes along who understands why William should have his doll.
