344U: Grumpy Doll in Dollhouse

• children’s book read in 2006-2011. Could have been quite old by then
• a new doll came to live in the doll house and didn’t trust the human caring for them, she stole things like a coin and a piece of hair to try and cast a spell on them
• the human returned from a trip and gave the doll something nice like a new rug or bed spread and it made the doll realize she was wanted and loved
• this was a traditional dollhouse – old and beautiful. The human was fixing it up and making it nice again. She was very thoughtful towards the dolls.
• this is not The Dolls’ House by Rumer Godden
• might have had a pink cover. It was a chapter book but not very lengthy

    I haven’t reread it in years and can’t remember much about the plot, but the one dollhouse chapter book with a pink cover I can think of is ‘When the Dolls Woke’ by Marjorie Filley Stover (1987).
