Summary

Katherine Mansfield's heartbreaking story of playground bullying. The Kelvey children are excluded from the schoolyard crowd because they come from a poor family with more than a hint of disreputableness about them.

Until one day, Kezia Burnell decides to invite the Kelveys in to see it....

A Doll's House

What would have made The Doll's House better?

Was this a sample? It drew me into the story, then it just ends. What a tease.

Has The Doll's House turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, just super short stories.

What does Cathy Dobson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She really brings the children to life, without sounding all squeaky, as most adults sound.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Well, it began alright. But then it just, ENDED.

Any additional comments?

Eh, it had potential.
