Description

When the doll maker creates Zigzag from scraps, she promises him, "Some child will love you." This gives the strange-looking doll hope. But the other dolls and stuffed animals in the shop don’t want such an ugly toy around. They force Zigzag to leave. Clinging to the promise that a child will someday love him, little Zigzag sets out to find a home.

Reviews

“The story of compassion for those who are different and hope for love and a place to belong is one that all children should hear over and over. This book is recommended for use in libraries and classrooms.” Laura Friesen, Holt Elementary School

Eye-catching illustrations…from cloth scraps create captivating, colourful collages set against a bright, white background…nicely composed, and the happy ending should please young readers.” School Library Journal
