The Doll People series of novels expands to picture books as Christmas descends on the Palmer household. The Dollsdelicate Victorian dolls who belong to Kate Palmerand the plastic Funcrafts who live in younger sister Noras room neatly represent the push-and-pull between tradition and change that often arises during the holidays, and that drives the action of this story. After the tiny angel that always tops the Doll familys Christmas tree is broken, its the first of several unwelcome events that cause some holiday strife before Annabelle Doll realizes that spontaneity and new experiences can be good things. Interestingly, the dolls spend time near the (non-mobile) figurines of the Palmer familys Nativity scene, though the book doesnt delve into what the crèche represents. Still, the authors gentle storytelling and Helquists intimate images of the dolls miniature world create a Christmas story thats rich with emotion. Ages 35. (Sept.)
