This is Valerie's world in miniature. She makes it what she wants it to be... without war, racial hate or miunderstanding. Ken and Barbie (dolls) are man and woman rather than Mom and Dad. They enjoy living and having a camper truck is the good life. Today Valerie has the chicken pox and can't go out and play.

1972 (print 1998)
