From the Publisher
"An excellent book about a boy named William who wants the forbidden--a doll. The long-awaited realistic handling of this theme makes it a landmark book."--School Library Journal
More than anything, William wants a doll. "Don't be a creep," says his brother. "Sissy, sissy," chants the boy next door. Then one day someone really understands William's wish, and make it easy for others to understand, too. William gets a doll, so he can learn to be a loving parent someday.
Written by beloved author Charlotte Zolotow and illustrated by Newbery Medal-winning author and Caldecott Honor Book illustrator William P ne du Bois, William's Doll was published in 1972 and was one of the first picture books to deal with gender stereotypes.
