Not yet rated | write a review
Hitty is a doll of great charm and character. It is indeed a privilege to publish her memoirs, which, besides being full of the most thrilling adventures on land and sea, also reveal her delightful personality. One glance at her portrait will show that she is no ordinary doll. Hitty, or Mehitable as she was really named, was made in the early 1800s for Phoebe Preble, a little girl from Maine. Young Phoebe was very proud of her beautiful doll and took her everywhere, even on a long sailing trip in a whaler. This is the story of Hitty''s years with Phoebe, and the many that follow in the life of a well-loved doll.

From Our Editors

A favorite with children in the middle grades since it was first published in 1929, Hitty: Her first Hundred Years by Rachel Field is the classic tale about a very special doll. Hitty was originally made for Phoebe Preble, who carried her beautiful doll everywhere she went, both on land and by sea. During Hitty’s hundred-year "life" she spends time with many little girls, travels on a whaling ship, visits the South Seas and lives for a while in a museum.
