Miss Miranda: Episodes in the Life of a Doll.

Written by Shirley Marine, this sweet book is about a doll named Miss Miranda who lives in an exhibit at the Milwaukee Public Museum. She comes to life at night during Pretend Time, along with all the other dolls and manikins in the Streets of Old Milwaukee.

Illustrated by Joanne Poehlmann.

Their adventures include a surprise birthday party, a trip to the dinosaur, an annual play, a census, and a visit from a German marionette, among others. Duty before pleasure and perseverance have competition from the joys of penny candy and the normal mischievousness of the young.

Signed by the author on the front endpapers.

Published in 1971 to honor the 125th anniversary of the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. First edition/second printing.

66 pages, all crisp and clean.
