Edith, "The Lonely Doll," is fascinated by the pendulum and gears visible within Mr. Bear's expensive new mantle clock. When she climbs up on a stack of books to get a better look, both Edith and the clock fall down with a crash! Unable to confess that she has broken it, Edith's guilty conscience makes her so unhappy that she can't even enjoy her birthday party. Sad, she wanders about the city for a day. It takes Mr. Bear's sympathetic understanding for Edith to regain her happiness and realize that telling the truth was the right thing to do all along.show more

About Dare Wright

Dare Wright (1914-2001) was a fashion model and photographer based in New York City. In 1957, she used her childhood doll Edith and two teddy bears as the subjects of her first book The Lonely Doll. The combination of mesmerizing black and white photographs and simple, eloquent text made the book an immediate success and earned it a place on The New York Times Best Seller list along with Dare Wright's next Lonely Doll book, Holiday For Edith And The Bears. Edith And Mr. Bear is the fifth book in the series featuring Edith, Little Bear and Mr. Bear. Originally published in 1964, its scenes were photographed in Dare Wright's apartment and on the streets of New York City. All of the photographs in this book have been reproduced from Dare Wright's original negatives that she developed in the tiny darkroom of her apartment.show more
