Sasha's Matrioshka Dolls

by Jana Dillon (Author), Deborah Nourse Lattimore (Illustrator)

A sweet confection about the first nesting dolls. In old Moscow live a girl named Sasha and her grandfather, a boxmaker. One day, Sasha’s ragdoll is eaten by mice. Her loving grandfather sets out to make her a doll that is impervious to mice, rats, cats, and even the Tsar’s cavalry. What can it be but seven carved wooden dolls nestled together to form one thumbling doll – the first matrioshka, or “little mother.”

How Sasha’s grandfather comes to make the doll is at the heart of this warm intergenerational story, lavishly illustrated in brilliant watercolors and colored pencils.
