Edith ("The Lonely Doll") brings a kitten back from the country, and her friend Little Bear feels very left out as Edith focuses all of her attention on her cuddly new playmate. It’s only when Edith is confined to her bed with the measles, that she begins to realize how much she misses Little Bear’s companionship. Little Bear sneaks in for a visit that turns into a disaster when he tries to cut Edith’s tangled hair. When Little Bear gets the measles, too, Edith uses her savings to buy him a puppy. Much to Mr. Bear’s delight, the two agree to share their pets and harmony is restored.

Dare Wright (1914-2001) was a fashion model and photographer based in New York City. In 1957, she used her childhood doll Edith and two teddy bears as the subjects of her first book The Lonely Doll. The combination of mesmerizing black and white photographs and simple, eloquent text made the book an immediate success and earned it a place on The New York Times Best Seller list along with Dare Wright’s next Lonely Doll book, Holiday For Edith And The Bears. The Lonely Doll Learns A Lesson is the fourth book in the series featuring Edith, Little Bear and Mr. Bear. Originally published in 1961, it was photographed within the confines of the author’s apartment in New York City. All of the photographs in this book have been reproduced from Dare Wright’s original negatives that she developed in her tiny darkroom.
