About this item

“Readers will find no trouble connecting with Chiyo, an endearing main character who is struggling to find her way in the world. . . . A fascinating look at Japanese culture.” — School Library JournalEleven-year-old Chiyo Tamura never imagined she’d go from her small Japanese mountain village to Tokyo, helping to welcome more than twelve thousand Friendship Dolls from America — including Emily Grace, a gift to her own school. Nor could she dream that she’d have an important role in the crafting of Miss Tokyo, one of fifty-eight Japanese dolls to be sent to America in return. But when Chiyo is asked to be Emily Grace’s official protector, one jealous classmate will stop at nothing to see her fail. Inspired by a little-known historical event, this engaging companion to Ship of Dolls continues the story of the Friendship Doll Exchange.
