Thrift shopping can reveal an irresistible item that makes no sense but the desire to own it is overwhelming. Young Olive acquires a cast-off dolly and sets about resurrecting it. She encounters frustrating obstacles but finally gets help from the person she ought to have asked first, her Gran.


This Bobbin-Olive Productions book for early readers honors elder women, sisters, aunts, grandmothers who possess mad skills and aren't shy, when asked, about putting them to work.
