A delightful tale in which the author, Emma Patten Beard, and her young friend "Marjorie" create an elaborate game in which Marjorie's dolls go to boarding school, presided over by the charming Miss Littledoll and three teachers. Beard herself attended Bradford Academy in Massachusetts near the turn of the century, and her memories of a peaceful prewar life away at school are exact and loving. The little girl's sewing ability is quite impressive. Early photographic illustration (Mus White 488)  Embossed gold foil emblem, Page & Shaw, Boston laid in.
