Publisher Summary

A girl makes her own dollhouse in this picture book that celebrates creativity and imagination!

A little girl proudly walks the reader through her handmade dollhouse, pointing out the bricks she painted on the outside, the wallpaper she drew on the inside, the fancy clothes she made for her dolls, and the little elevator she made out of a paper cup. She’s proud of her house and has lots of fun using her imagination to play with it—until she discovers her friend Sophie’s “perfect” storebought house. Sophie thinks her house, with everything matching and even a toilet seat that goes up and down, is pretty perfect too, until both girls discover that the narrator’s handmade dollhouse is really a lot more fun.

“Celebrates the best of free play, capturing what it’s like to be fully engaged and inspired.” —The New York Times

“Readers will feel right at home with this cozy tribute to imagination.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred

“The realization that creative, outside-the-box artistry can be more inspiring than anything manufactured makes for a wonderful story.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred
