Not as shown the copy I received has a chunk missing from back top corner . Front cover has several tears . All pages beyond yellow n brown . Not worth 50 cents . Photos in listing clearly show a different book . Description only mentions price tag . Not as described at all . Feeling scamed ! Paid over $14.00 for trash ! After seeing the photos in this review owls books sent a refund and apology . Which is appreciated . For that reason I uped the star rate to three .

The book was in great shape. This was my favorite when I was a child and now I read it to my class. Thank you!

I read this to my daughters and now to my granddaughters. What girl hasn't wished for tiny people to move into her doll house? I love that the King stays home and cares for the babies while the Queen is off having adventures.

bought this book for my 6 year old daughter. This was my favorite book when I was a child. Makes your imagination go on overdrive! Perfect for little girls!

I had a dollhouse as a kid and loved the idea of an actual tiny family moving in. In this story, Ellie actually had it happen. Suddenly a king and his huge brood of tiny babies were living in the house, and she has to figure out how to provide for him. Using her imagination and ingenuity to make sure the king and his kids have food to eat and facilities to use, she marvels at their small size and enjoys her time with them when she has to amuse herself. (Her mother's busy writing a book, and she has no siblings.)

As a "what-if" child, I found the unanswered questions a bit bothersome, though. I loved that the king was having to raise his kids (though he was inept at it) while his queen was away doing who knows what (adventuring!), but . . . how the heck did they get so many babies the same age? Despite being tiny, the small people's anatomy appeared to be like anyone else's, so I found myself thinking . . . "did she lay eggs??" It also bothered me a lot that when they needed the queen to come back and care for sick babies, they decided that the way to bring her back would be to wish really hard that she would return. (I remember Ellie thinking "QUEEN" as loud as she could, which actually worked. Suddenly there was a tiny queen, riding a rat.) I didn't know how this worked since other than that the tiny people were not suggested to actually be telepathic or something.

Overall the chapter-by-chapter format was very episodic and fun to read, and its whimsical impossibilities reminded me a bit of the Pippi Longstocking books. I thought the king was kind of a jerk because he was bossing Ellie around all the time even though she was a giant to him and didn't need to do his bidding just because he had a crown. The babies, though . . . they were so cute. Especially picturing them covered in peanut butter.

Opening sentence: "'Oh, drat!' said the tiniest voice in the world."

Ellie has a dollhouse in her room, but "The house seems real, and the dolls didn't, so I put them away." She awakens one morning to find new tenants, real ones. King Borra Borra, who stands about 6 inches high, has moved in with the 11 royal babies. The Queen is off on adventures, leaving the homebody King to care happily for the babies. Despite the Queen's wandering ways, the King and Queen have a wonderful relationship, and Ellie is delighted to provide the family's daily fare of peanut butter (for the babies), and raisins and cookies (for the royal couple).

It isn't really a doll story, because these are living beings, albeit tiny ones, and the King has some things to teach Ellie, not only about housekeeping ("I happen to enjoy housekeeping, and I like to see it done well") but also about friendship, change, and how to attend to the needs of others. This is an especially strong story for imaginative daughters, loving fathers, and liberated mothers.

A friend and I were discussing books that we pick up over and over again throughout our lives and of course I thought of this one. I loved this book so much that my copy is falling apart at the seams. What a wonderful story, so descriptive, and so imaginative. I watched my dollhouse like a hawk for years. Anyone would love this story, my brother even loved it. I wish it were in print so I could get a copy for my god daughter.
This book is a good start for beginners and for others, all ages. It tells the story of a little girl that has a dollhouse and she discovers that a minature royal family has moved in. Full of fun and imagination opportunities. I recomend this book to everyone, I am in my twenties and still love it.
