The Dolls' Christmas by Tasha Tudor

Published in 1950, this delightful child-sized book tells the story of two dolls named Sethany Ann and Nicey Melinda and the little girls who own them, two sisters named Laura and Efner.  The dolls live in an amazing doll house called Pumpkin House, seen in the illustration below.  Old fashioned and sentimental with highly detailed watercolor illustrations, this book transports the reader to a world where playing with dolls is a complete lifestyle, with great care and attention given to every aspect of the dolls' environment and active social lives.  Highly recommended!
