KIRKUS REVIEW

Clownishly moronic rather than cloyingly ""adorable"" like Dare Wright's Edith, Doreen Gay-Kelly's dolls are given the same photographic treatment and a story evidently invented to caption the author-constructed scenes. Thus button-eyed, spaghetti-haired Bea who is afraid of dogs learns to love an ingratiating shaggy stray in a doll house setting complete with checkered tablecloth, picket fence and astroturf. But we found Bea just as coy as Edith in her own unpretty way and, except for the absence of the optical trick, the enterprise is on a par with those ""3-D"" cardboard fairy tales from the dime store.
