This is the little Art Doll that my friend Sandy made for me. It says TEN on the front, because I told her how I used to walk to the library every Friday, and take out 10 books, that was all they'd let me have. I was about 11 years old, and my uber-reading habit was well established already.
 I read all the books they had on Greek mythology, (from the adult section), by special permission!
But that was not the limit of my interests. I also read mysteries, and historical fiction, and many other genres.
Sandy remembered the story, and made this dolly, who wears a chicken on her head,( see my art), a tea bag on her necklace, and holds a tea cup and a book. What a sweetheart Sandy is.
