A stunning picture book that deals gently with the themes of
identity, making choices and following one's destiny.
Serena is a lonely doll, forgotten amid musty books and
discarded boxes in an attic. She doesn't realize it, but the
children who used to play with her have grown up long ago. Each
morning she prepares herself in hopes that visitors will come. From
a small window she sees treetops, birds and stars.
One day the door swings open and the fragrance of woods and
sunshine fills the attic. But instead of children, there stands a
wild doll, dirty and unkempt. The wild doll invites Serena out into
the beautiful world to play, but she refuses, choosing instead to
wait for the children to return.
Alone once more, Serena stares out into the night, thinking of
the wild doll and her invitation. A green star seems to beckon, and
Serena makes up her mind to go. Down the stairs, through the house
and out into the world she ventures. Down the streets, through the
alleys, she searches for the wild doll.
At last they meet and adventure ensues. They see beautiful
sights, travel the town on the back of a fox, and ride a Ferris
wheel. The wild doll explains that she was lost long ago and became
wild. Now the whole world is her home and the animals are her
friends. At the doll maker's shop, they peep through the window to
see the man who made them both so long ago.
As the dawn rises, the wild doll says good-bye, and as she
disappears into the fading night, she advises Serena to go where
the children go. When the children discover her, Serena is sitting
on a swing with the wind in her hair and the sun on her face, and
she finds a happy new home. Every now and then, however, when the
green star calls her, Serena slips into the night to play once more
with the wild doll.
