Ms. Garrett has hit the ball out of the park with this book!!! I've gone cover to cover twice in two days and what a treat. "Black Dolls..." is an absolute must have for anyone who loves, collects or has any interest in Black dolls. It is chock full of detailed descriptions, values and nearly 1000 full color pictures. What a tremendous help when trying to identify a little treasure. I liked or should I say loved this book so much I bought both the hard copy and the ebook. I highly recommend "Black Dolls...". Thanks Ms Garrett for your time, energy, patience and passion while penning "Black Dolls". Your love and passion really shines through.
