The Princess Dolls reviewed in ‘The Ormsby Review’

Posted on 

The Princess Dolls by Ellen Schwartz, with illustrations by Mariko Ando, has received a very favourable review in ‘The Ormsby Review’.

“Through school curriculum, the internment story will become familiar to children in Canada — how 22,000 people of Japanese ancestry living in coastal BC, three-quarters of whom were born in Canada, were stripped of their civil rights and property and interned in camps in the BC Interior. The Princess Dolls personalizes it and makes it accessible to children (certainly the girls who will be the majority of its readers) through this charming story.”
