The Monster She Wrote Podcast

Feb 8, 2022

Poppy, Zack and Alice are three friends who meet after school to play a game of fantasy and imagination. They use dolls and action figures to tell an elaborate story involving pirates, mermaids, and other adventurers. The main story involves the Great Queen, a bone-china doll who lives in the glass cabinet at Poppy’s house. Zach wants to stop the game, because his father believes middle school is too old to play make-believe, but Poppy brings the friends together one last time. She’s been dreaming of the ghost inside of the china doll–and the ghost won’t rest until the doll is buried in her grave.
