Baby Princess was out in Market Street with her mother and her favorite doll. The shops were filled with things from different lands and there were people everywhere. She saw a doll her size in one of the shops and it made faces. Though it did not speak, the magical doll smiled and pointed. When Baby Princess turned to look, the magical doll jumped and took her favorite doll. She ran away into Moogo's magic shop and Baby Princess chased her. The magical doll ran to the back of the shop and climbed a bookshelf and Baby Princess did not know what to do to get her favorite doll back. Baby Princess climbed to the top of the bookshelf and the magical doll had nowhere to go. Would Baby Princess get her favorite doll back or would the magical doll take it from her and go?
