"This book fills a gap on the shelf of practical books. We know of no other like it. Its author has been making dolls' houses for several years, some of them have been sold at high prices. In her book she gives full instructions for building a variety of most attractive houses which can be made by anyone reasonably good with their hands. First is a model schoolhouse that could be made by schoolchildren from cheap and handy materials. The next is a modern house and shop that could be made by an older child or an adult, perhaps as a present for a younger child who would be able to decorate and furnish it. The third, and most ambitious scheme, is a nineteenth century draper's shop, with a flat above it. They include a Westmorland Farmhouse, A Tall Villa, A Sea Side Boarding House, A Sweet Shop and a Public House".
