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 dixie 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 store-bought "perfect" 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.

This is a really nice story highlighting the power of imagination in playtime. And the inspirational joy of making something yourself rather than buying it ready-made.

A picture book celebrating imagination and resourcefulness. The narrator, who is unnamed, created a much-loved dollhouse out of a cardboard box and adorned it with found and upcycled objects. When she goes to visit her friend, Sophie, who has a pristine, manufactured house and dolls, she gets insecure about her own dollhouse, but when she invites Sophie over to play, they both end up immersed in creative play.
