Pointers For Little Persons, Obedience, Starring Three Little Dolls, Virginia Parkinson, claytoons-Sass-Dorne Studio, 1945


Unique illustrations using clay and photography. This was part of a 6 part book series published in 1945.

"In this delightfully wise book, Peter Doll, Daisy Doll and Raggy Doll tell of their exciting experiences at sea. The three Dolls find themselves in serious difficulties because they disobeyed their parents.
Virginia Parkinson, in lilting verse, carries you through this fascinating adventure. You live in the tiny doll village where candy trees line the narrow streets. You ride the waves with Peter Doll. Daisy Doll and Raggy Doll in a tiny basket. You share the hardships with them and meet Walter Whale and Peter Porpoise.

In "Claytoons** Sass-Dorne have reached the peak of perfection in their handling of this interesting medium of art. These settings, in miniature, are the handiwork of a staff of highly talented artists in clay modelling, stage lighting and color photography.
As you will discover, every detail has been handled with painstaking care. Truly, these are masterpieces in third dimensional art."
