The small doll sets that stack one inside the other have captured hearts the world around. The dolls bring Russia's culture, tradition, and history to life.

How to Hollow a Book Into a Secret Compartment Box
These are a Fun Gift for Lovers of the Written Word
I looked in the book and what did I find
Some silly person had stolen all the insides.
The book was empty. Not a word nor a thought.
All of its content had been shuffled out.
Gone, stolen, borrowed, or hidden?
All the knowledge removed
Left without a clue nor a smidgen.
Mystery, horror, romance, or adventure
books lead us on trails we would not otherwise venture.
Good golly but why would someone dare
steal the passion and prose from a book's inside?
