Movingly told and amazingly illustrated, this timeless tale of a China doll's determination to get her owner a special birthday present will become a children's classic.

Sarah had been waiting for Jessica's fifth birthday for what seemed like forever. She knew exactly what she wanted to get her owner too: a tea set. It was the perfect gift, but there was only one problem: Where was a china doll going to find such a tea set?

\When Sarah the doll slips out of her owner Jessica's arms one night and goes in search of a tea set, she cannot imagine what adventures await her and what creatures she will meet. By the time she clasps the desired gift in her arms, her dress is torn and muddy, her silk ribbon and handsome bonnet gone, and her delicate porcelain head cracked.

The perseverance, resolve, and bravery shown by a pretty China doll as she pursues her goal--despite many dangers along the way--will touch young readers' hearts and teach them an unforgettable lesson in selfless love.

The poignant and surprising ending will stir the emotions of every young reader--and the evocative paintings will make every affecting moment of the story seem almost real.
