The first story, The Mousewife, is about a mouse who yearns for something more than babies and crumbs and cheese. One day, she meets a dove in a birdcage, who tells her about the outside world and what it is like to fly. The second story, Mouse House, is about a little mouse who lives in an overcrowded flowerpot. When she gets pushed out, she ventures upstairs, and finds mouse house.
Dolls, of course, cannot talk. They can only make wishes that some people can feel.
When Candy Floss is stolen, she must find a way to get back to the fair.
Impunity Jane longs for adventure. Two different stories about two different dolls and the power of wishes.
