The Toymaker’s Doll
Contemporary / 82 views
A limp. A scuff. A cowardly heart.
Jane is a doll struggling with all these things. She and her friend Isabel, a blind stuffed kitten, spend their days in the corner of their shelf, watching the other toys in the shop play—and wishing they could be like them.
Questions plague the friends. Why has the Toymaker allowed them to be flawed? Surely it’s a mistake. One day, Jane sets off to find his workshop, eager to be fixed, and to bring him back for Isabel.
But the journey is hard and the road long. How can such a weak, fearful doll ever reach the Toymaker? And how will he respond if she does?
In this sweet story reminiscent of a children’s book, E. G. Bella offers a moving tale of what it means to trust, to love, and to shine light into the dark discouragements of life.
