Once there was a little doll. Her name was Edith. She lived in a nice house and had everything she needed except someone to play with. She was very lonely! Then one morning Edith looked into the garden and there stood two bears! Since it was first published in 1957, The Lonely Doll has established itself as a unique children's classic. Through innovative photography and simple text, Dare Wright brings the world of dolls and bears to life with an alchemy that creates far more than just a story. Edith was a 1925 felt doll from Dare's childhood, which Dare repainted and refashioned into the iconic character of "Edith The Lonely Doll." In the mid-1950s Dare began photographing Edith with two stuffed bears-Mr. Bear and Little Bear-and The Lonely Doll book series was launched.
