William's Doll by Charlotte Zolotow


William's Doll by Charlotte Zolotow

William wants a doll - to hug, to feed, to tuck in, and kiss goodnight. Don't be a creep, says his brother. Sissy, sissy, chants the boy next door. His father buys him trains and a basketball - but not the doll that William really wants. Then one day, someone comes along who understands why William should have his doll.


An excellent book about a boy named William who wants the forbidden -- a doll. The long-awaited realistic handling of this theme makes it a landmark book. -- School Library Journal
