Edith and the Duckling Reviews
The last of the Edith and The Bears series, you can tell Dare Wright reached the end of the road when the name in the title changed from The Lonely Doll to Edith. Also, the tone in this book is less playful and funny and much more somber with images of Edith bundled up in clothing more than ever and the landscape looking more wintry and dark than usual.The duckling in the story is also highly symbolic of Wright's approach to the series: starting as a hatching being nursed by Edith and Little Bear, by the final pages of the book Edith is told by Mr. Bear the duck is too old to be kept and has to be set free, with Edith sadly musing, "Goodbye, our duck. See you in the spring. Why is spring so far away?" :(
This is the one I had growing up. Edith is a lovely little doll, just a perfect representation of an inquisitive little girl. Mr Bear and Little Bear are apt companions, and the photography is a sight to behold.
