This is the story of Patty whose playmate was the lovable wee Pim, straight from the Land of Make-Believe. You will read about Patty's adventures with her doll, Susan Snooperdorf Spezzerfritz, and you will meet Pim himself, and all the rest of the tiny company of playmates. You will love Pim as he plays with Patty, unseen by anyone else except Susan. And how you will delight in the way Pim helps Patty with her troubles, even at the table!
