Here is "The Dolls' House" a Puffin Book by Rumer Godden and illustrated by Tasha Tudor from 1976 (copyright 1947).

This paperback book is 5" x 7 3/4" and in good used condition. The imperfections seem to be mostly natural wear and fade.

What an amazing combination in Rumer Godden and Tasha Tudor! Each has a very detailed wiki page that is worth reading!

In 1984, Goldcrest Films released two animated series based on this book called "Tottie: The Story of a Doll's House". In the series, the dolls are alive and actively move around while the human actors are inanimate. The BBC has the rights to these and have made DVDs available for purchase. In 1986 there was another animation called "The Doll's Wish" of which there are apparently no copies. .... that would make for a nice find!!!

There is very interesting information on this series and the origins of the book on wiki.
