Sometimes Miss Whitcomb faced the inside of the dollhouse out toward the street; other times, it was the facade. Either way, the girls loved to see the way she rearranged and changed it, to fit in perfectly with the holidays and seasons.Lila and Jane can't seem to walk down Cheshire street without stopping at their good friend Miss Whitcomb's home to admire the beautiful dollhouse in her window. Since Daddy lost his job, the girls can only dream of owning a dollhouse as grand. After all, it's three stories, with real clapboard siding and a cedar shingle roof.But one day something sad happens to Miss Whitcomb, and Lila and Jane are devastated. How will the girls find hope in a time of need? Set during the Depression, this heartwarming story proves that friendship is indeed a magic all its own.
