HITTY Her First Hundred Years

by | Read by Jan Maxwell

Children Ages 8+ • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1929

A well-traveled doll named Hitty begins her memoirs in Maine in the 1800s, where she was created from a piece of mountain ash. Her journey begins on a whaling ship and leads her all over the world, making her the companion of South Seas natives and an Indian snake charmer, and taking her to Philadelphia, New York, and a Mississippi riverboat, among other places. This 1930 Newbery-winning classic remains a delight when heard with Jan Maxwell's clear, precise narration, which is suitable to a doll's steady nature. The first-person narration of a century of adventures will appeal to a wide age range, though stories of a doll's experiences are more likely to be popular with girls. B.F.
