An enchanting tale of an adventure-filled voyage

across the ocean, from America to pre-state

Israel. The year was 1933, and the travellers –

a family of dolls. Or is this a real-life family

chronicle of the hardships of immigration and

absorption, related as a whimsical doll-fantasy?

A picture of how people lived in what was then

Jewish Palestine, how they spoke, and what they

felt toward their ancestral homeland.

Written by Abraham Regelson, the poet, author, essayist and translator

– a former recipient of the prestigious Brenner, Bialik and Neuman

(NYU) Prizes for Hebrew literature. The Dolls’ Journey is a vintage book,

treasured as a children’s classic in the memory of many veteran Israelis

– among them the late songwriter Naomi Shemer, who, in a radio

interview, named it her favorite childhood read. Out of print for years,

it is often mentioned on Yaron Enosh’s weekly call-in radio program

“Kol Shishi” (Friday Voice). On these broadcasts, Book Hunter Itamar

Levy declares, “One of my most frequently requested books!”

English translation, prologue and epilogue by the author’s daughter

Sharona, who was the actual “mother of the dolls”. Original illustrations

by Nahum Gutman, Aryeh Navon, Bina Gevirtz and others, from

various previous editions.

The young of all ages – children, parents and grandparents alike – will

relish this quality book of sheer delight.
