Review:
Happy ending notwithstanding, there's something indescribably poignant about those seven little wooden bathtub dolls smiling so bravely on the windowsill, "their sides barely touching." They are fated to feel all terrors and vicissitudes at the same time they strive to communicate - to love - as vitally, as warmly as though they, too, were flesh and blood. The perfect combination of author and illustrator may make this a minor classic.
