Dolls of Hope

Description:
How daring is Chiyo prepared to be to keep the American Friendship Doll safe? Inspired by a little-known historical event, this engaging companion to 'Ship of Dolls 'is told from a Japanese girl s point of view. When eleven-year-old Chiyo Tamura is sent from her home in a small Japanese mountain village to a girls school in the city of Tsuchiura, she never imagines that she will soon be in Tokyo helping to welcome more than twelve thousand Friendship Dolls from America including Emily Grace, a gift to her own school. Nor could she dream that she d have an important role in the crafting of Miss Tokyo, one of fifty-eight Japanese dolls to be sent to America in return. But when an excited Chiyo is asked to be Emily Grace s official protector, one jealous classmate will stop at nothing to see her fail. How can Chiyo reveal the truth and restore her own good name? In another heartwarming historical novel, the author of 'Ship of Dolls 'revisits the 1926 Friendship Doll exchange, in which teacher-missionary Sidney Gulick organized American children to send thousands of dolls to Japan in hopes of avoiding a future war.'
