Description

Edith, the doll featured in Dare Wright's best-selling "The Lonely Doll" book series, together with her friends, Mr. Bear and Little Bear, leave their city home for a vacation on Ocracoke Island in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Their summer is spent playing on pristine beaches, discovering the seaside wildlife, getting acquainted with wild ponies, and imagining adventures on the high seas. Little Bear ignores Mr. Bear's warning never to go on a boat without him, and he and Edith soon find themselves drifting dangerously out to sea. Luckily Mr. Bear comes to their rescue, and the two learn a valuable lesson before their vacation ends.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. A year later, she brought Edith and The Bears back in Holiday For Edith And The Bears, which Wright photographed in one of her favorite places, North Carolina's remote Ocracoke Island. Both books made The New York Times Best Seller list and Wright went on to achieve the publication of eighteen other popular stories that have been loved by three generations of children and their parents. Edith, Little Bear and Mr. Bear did all of their own stunts while shooting the books in which they played starring roles. They were soaked in the surf, nudged by ponies and rescued from the ocean. More than half a century after their adventures, the three are living together happily in semi-retirement.show more
