Product Description:

Title: Miss Hickory <>Binding: Paperback <>Author: CarolynSherwinBailey <>Publisher: PuffinBooks

Review:

"The adventures of a country doll made of an apple-wood twig, with a hickory nut for a head. The story is told with humor and with an appreciation of the countryside and the seasons. Miss Hickory remains at all times exactly what she is, a doll, yet becomes for the reader a very rich and memorable personality."

-Children will thoroughly enjoy the inventive details, perfectly proportioned, of Miss Hickory's life in the orchard, and her adventures... They will like her stout apple-wood heart and her brisk practicality, which seems to soften as winter lengthens into spring. The end of her tale... adds a final touch of poetry to an unusual fantasy.- -- The New York Times
