Adriana Gets a Real Little Baby
based on a true story

About the Book
This is the story about a little Dutch girl who lives in Belgium in the 1920's. She has 22 dolls but wants a real baby. She wonders how to get one and challenges the seemingly unfair delivery of babies to all the neighbours' homes except her own.
This book has a charming Dutch flavour and would be ideal for any young child. It may also be of special interest to anyone of Dutch descent.
The sweet and simple illustrations were done by Freyja Zazu Fjolkunnigr, to whom I am very grateful.
