Based on the 1930 Newberry Award Winner On a cold Maine night in 1829, an old peddler carved a small doll out of a piece of mountain ash wood. Her name was Hitty and she was no ordinary doll. Hitty's first owner, Phoebe Preble, takes her from Boston to India. From the hands of Phoebe Preble, Hitty travels on with a snake charmer, a Civil War soldier, a riverboat captains daughter, and a former slave. Along the way she meets presidents and painters, relating each adventure in vivid detail. Rachel Field's masterful novel Hitty: Her First Hundred Years was first published in 1929; it was awarded the Newbery Medal in 1930. In this full-color adaptation, the award-winning team of Rosemary Wells and Susan Jeffers has taken Hitty down from the shelf and dusted her off for a new generation of younger readers. The short, fast-paced chapters and pictures on every spread bring life to this beloved classic, and make it perfect for sharing with the whole family.

What a thoroughly engaging book. The adventures the doll goes on and the sights she see's, the people she meets. I was on an adventure myself with her as i read all her exciting experiences from being caught up by a crow, to shipwrecked, then meeting island natives - becoming their "god", to India. I wondered if she'd ever make it back home! An exciting read!
