* In Doris Orgel's ''A Certain Magic'', twelve-year-old Trudl has been sent from Nazi-occupied Austria to England alone and aching for her family and her dolls. Her host family's snobbish daughter has an exquisite doll called Felicity. In her diary Trudl writes a beautiful story about bringing Felicity to life and taking her on secret adventures.
