She loves to make dolls in a shed out in back of the house. She lives with Lord Wixby and Aunt May in a lavish estate at the edge of town. Aunt May teaches her to use a sewing machine and gives her a small one suited to size as a birthday gift.

You will meet the pirate, Captain Flynn, who loves to have his guests walk the plank and the loveable Kakuna villagers who's harvest is soon to be confiscated by the royal soldiers. But please beware of the Oxboar forest, where the evil Hoarggs reside otherwise you may end up in a stew-pot. Tammy has an adventure in which she learns to love all the strange living creatures she encounters in a magical land. Before she departs, all of Kira will fall in love with The Little Doll Girl who changed them forever and became a legend.

From the Inside Flap:

Craig Miller: Give-a-way winner. "Magical!
Be prepared for a magical tale like no other!
Tammy Wurtherington wrote this joyous diary in 1883. In the preface we discover that it was recently discovered by Professor Landsbury in an old shed in his Ohio back yard. Tammy writes of her fascination with her aunt's sewing machine and begins making dolls in the shed.
What follows is a magical journey to Kira where she travels across the enchanted land in a quest to bring the kingdom to its former glory. Evil princesses, Lucinda and Catherine rule the kingdom with an iron hand that must be stopped.
Before the quest is over you will meet a rag-tag group of pirates, the Kukana elves, the korgoyle, and the terrible Hoarggs. This is a wonderland where flowers and animals talk quite freely. Plan to fall in love with Zeke the adorable opossum and Cedric the flying mongoose who become best friends with Tammy.
The diary is lavishly illustrated and will bring the story to life for the youngest and oldest of readers. One can easily compare this to Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Narnia, and other children's classics. Like the classics, it is magical and introduces the reader to a joyous world of imagination like no other.
In that this is one of eight books is a delight for this reader as one can only imagine what delights lie before us. Tammy Wurtherington is a joyful spirit that gives us hope as only she can do. Before the tale has come to the final pages we can see that a brave little girl with a big heart can make dreams come true.
