William wants a doll - to hug, to feed, to tuck in, and kiss goodnight. "Don't be a creep, " says his brother. "Sissy, sissy, " chants the boy next door. His father buys him trains and a basketball - but not the doll that William really wants. Then one day, someone comes along who understands why William should have his doll.
