The Racketty-Packetty House by Frances Hodgson Burnett

Do you like dolls and fairies?  This book is 100 years old and has just come out in a new version with beautiful, detailed illustrations.  The same author who wrote The Secret Garden and A Little Princess wrote this story of two dollhouses and the dolls who inhabit them.  The old, shabby doll  house (Racketty- Packetty House) is shoved in a corner when a beautiful new Tidy Castle arrives.  But the dolls who live in Racketty-Packetty House still dance and sing and have wonderful times;  that is, until they find out their house is going to be destroyed.  Lucky for the dolls there is a band of fairies in the house!  Read this wonderful old classic to find out how the fairies save the day.
