Description


A Newbery Award winner!

Most dolls lead a comfortable but unadventurous life. This was true of Miss Hickory until the fateful day that her owner, Ann, moves from her New Hampshire home to attend school in Boston—leaving Miss Hickory behind. For a small doll whose body is an apple-wood twig and whose head is a hickory nut, the prospect of spending a New Hampshire winter alone is frightening indeed. In this classic modern day fairy tale, what’s a doll to do?

About the Author


Carolyn Sherwin Bailey was born in Hoosick Falls, New York and spent her childhood in the little Hudson River town of Lansingburg. She studied at Teachers College, Columbia University and the New York School of Social Work and began writing afterward (an activity which eventually produced thirty-five books).

The author and her husband, Dr. Eben C. Hill, lived for many years on Hill Farm, in Temple, New Hampshire, whose antiques and apple orchard inspired the Newbery Medal-winning book Miss Hickory (1947).

Praise For…


"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

"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." — Booklist
