The Story of Holly and Ivy by Rumer Godden illustrated Barbara Cooney

Ivy is an orphan and wishes to have a home and a grandmother.  One night she escapes to the town of Appleton to search for that perfect home and grandmother.
Meanwhile, in Appleton, the beautiful doll, Holly wishes someone would purchase her and take her home.
The "lives" intersect and are forever changed.
This story celebrates hope.
A very long picture book for children with longer attention spans.
-Borrowed from the library.
Strategy: check for understanding (the point of view changes often)
Warning: Abracadabra, the stuffed owl in the toy shop, is very mean and vindictive.
