Horn Book Review

Yoko comes to school for career week announcing that she wants to be a teacher when she grows up; she brings valuable Japanese dolls (her students) with her. The dolls disappear overnight but reappear the next day. This easy reader, illustrated in Wells's style, is less obviously moralistic than others in the series but more jarring because it has two distinct plots and no satisfying resolution to either.
