Product Disclaimer: Please be aware that because leather is a natural material, slight discoloration or change in texture may be visible. I loved this story of the little doll who has been forgotten in the attic by her (now-grown up) former owner, and finds a new child to love her one Christmas Eve. A twice told tale, but rarely has it been more charmingly told, than in this quaint little story of a forlorn and forgotten.

Abandoned for many years in an attic, Miss Flora leads a lonely life, her only companion young Timothy Mouse, who visits her from time to time. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set.We eagerly await your feedback, hoping that you'll find it appealing and will generously share your thoughts and recommendations. As this print on demand book is reprinted from a very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible.

WE HAVE MULTIPLE OPTIONS IN COLOR OF LEATHER RED, GREEN, BLUE, MAGENTA, TAN, DEEP BROWN, BLACK WITH DIFFERENT COLOR LABELS. Then one evening, when her murine friend tells her of the unusual goings on downstairs, and she realizes that it is Christmas Eve, Miss Flora, leaving her hermitage for the first time in years, sets out to see the Christmas tree, having an unexpected encounter with Santa Claus in the process, and finding her dearest wish granted. In any case, I found this a fairly engaging tale, particularly as I enjoy doll stories that have a melancholy streak in them, and Miss Flora's early loneliness definitely fit the bill.

We give our best to give you the best book but in some cases we have to adjust few pages which are blur or missing or black spots. Originally published in 1949, and then reprinted in this 1988 edition, Miss Flora McFlimsey's Christmas Eve is the first of nine picture-books devoted to the adventures of this sweet, lady-like doll, whose name is taken from William Allen Butler's nineteenth-century children's poem, Nothing to Wear. It is a tale about an old doll in a toy cupboard in the attic who decides to see the Christmas Tree one more time thanks to the stories about it from Timothy Mouse.

We found this book important for the readers who want to know more about our old treasure so we brought it back to the shelves. I remember reading Flora McFlimsy books when I was a very young child, checking them out at the library when I first was able to get a library card. She also received many letters from grandmothers and great-grandmothers who remembered the nineteenth-century poem by William Allen Butler about the original Miss Flora McFlimsey, which was her inspiration for the Miss Flora stories. This endearing little book has the shining simplicity and the ageless appeal that is felt in the best loved for children the world over.However, in certain instances, occasional blurriness, missing segments, or faint black spots might persist. As an adult, she lived and worked in a studio on Madison Avenue, in New York City in the fall, winter and spring.
