Looks can be deceiving!
When Charlotte gets a delicate doll from her aunt Edme, she is not too happy. She tells the doll that she and Bruno, her bear, "like digging in dirt and climbing trees. No tea parties, no being pushed around in frilly prams. You'll just have to get used to the way we do things." Much to Charlotte and Bruno's surprise, Dahlia seems to like getting dirty while making mud cakes and racing wagons. But at the end of the day, Charlotte's aunt arrives for a visit and wants to see how Dahlia's doing . . . and Charlotte is in for another surprise.
Charming, detailed illustrations accompany this sweet story about making room for a new friend.
I love dahlias. The way they show up late in the season like little old ladies in their leopardskin pillbox hats, making their way to their theatre seats with their walkers, attended to by younger ones than they -- yesterday it was an impatient squirrel who flitted about the dahlia beds on the University of Chicago campus in Hyde Park. The dahlias stood serene among all that activity. As old as the ages, flashing the last of their splendor, knowing it all will unfold just as it has before: the frost will come, their petals will fade and fall, and then: the winter.
I got two Dahlias this season and feel rich, rich, rich. I am completely overtaken by the contrasting color in this one. I took this one to Mary yesterday as a good luck wish for the delivery of her baby boy. The pictures of her that I posted in August show her just at the end of her 8th month but when I saw her yesterday I couldn't believe she could be even bigger. I swear, it is the most confounding miracle! Any day now!!!!!!
