This children's Christmas book is of Billie the Brownie, a tiny elf with a squeaky, high pitched voice who was Santa's most trusted helper, and Billie the Brownie's friend - 6 year old Dori Mae.
Billie the Brownie is based on a radio character who delighted millions of mid-western radio listeners from 1931 to 1955. Thousands of Dear Santa letters poured into the radio station every year. At 5 o'clock weekdays, listeners anxiously waited to hear if Billie would read their wish letter on the air. The book tells about Dori Mae, one of those anxious Billie listeners.
Dori Mae and Her Friend Billie will appeal to readers from 3 to 99. Grandparents will share their Billie the Brownie stories with their children and grandchildren. A true bonding experience of a Milwaukee-Midwestern tradition.
