The Lonely Doll

by Wright, Dare

The Lonely Doll is the first children's book in a series by photographer and author Dare Wright. The story is told through words and photographs. It was first published in 1957, went out of print for years, and was reissued by Houghton Mifflin in 1998. It is in its 10th hardcover printing since then. Wright, whose own life was speculated upon as being reflected in this tale of a lonely, yet mischievous doll "adopted" by two bears, wrote 10 books starring Edith and the bears.
