About the Author

Marion Hislop has had a life-long interest in dollmaking and collecting. This interest became public in 1977 when she put together her "Good Neighbour Doll Show" in order to entertain children in schools and public libraries. This show was made up of dolls both from the various regions of Canada and from the many cultural backgrounds which make up the Canadian mosaic. Because she believes that dolls are the storytellers of the people, through the "Show" she tried to increase understanding and tolerance.

Mrs. Hislop was born and educated in the city of Toronto. She now lives in Edmonton.
