About the Author

Dare Wright (1914-2001) was a fashion model and photographer based in New York City. In 1957, she used her childhood doll Edith and two teddy bears as the subjects of her first book The Lonely Doll. The combination of mesmerizing black and white photographs and simple, eloquent text made the book an immediate success and earned it a place on The New York Times Best Seller list along with Dare Wright's next Lonely Doll book, Holiday For Edith And The Bears. A Gift From The Lonely Doll is the sixth book in the series featuring Edith, Little Bear and Mr. Bear. Originally published in 1966, it was photographed both within the confines of the author's small apartment in New York City, and in and around the home of a friend in upstate New York. All of the photographs in this book have been reproduced from Dare Wright's original negatives that she developed in the tiny darkroom of her New York City apartment.

Another in Dare Wright's series about the doll named Edith and her Bear family. The story line concerns giving and kindness. As always, the photos are haunting. Ms Wright never pretends these are anything but dolls and stuffed animals, but there is a lurking sense of unease and sorrow behind the pictures.

The Lonely Doll is my all-time favorite children's book. The black and white photography and the expressions and movement Wright gets from the doll and bears is spectacular. Although this book has been around for generations, it doesn't tire. It's storytime perfection.
