Caitlin's Holiday

Helen V. Griffith, Author, Susan Condie Lamb, Illustrator Greenwillow Books $12.95 (96p) ISBN 978-0-688-09470-6
Caitlin is not sure what possessed her to trade her doll Jodi for the one at Rigby's Resale, except that the new doll--which she names Holiday--is breathtakingly beautiful and stylish. When Holiday proves capable of independent thought and speech, however, Caitlin begins to suspect she's gotten more than she bargained for--a bad-tempered, if miniature, companion who plays her radio all night and is interested only in shopping for new outfits and working on her tan. Griffith takes full advantage of the comic potential inherent in this sort of role reversal, wherein a well-behaved child is suddenly, dauntingly responsible for an unruly charge. Holiday's antics and overall ill humor put her in a league with such popular masters of misbehavior as Rotten Ralph--even if her ultimate rehabilitation does prove a bit of a letdown. Ages 6-up.
