This book is one of my all-time favorites. I read it when much younger, though an adult, then lost sight of it for years and bought it again about 10 years ago. It inspired a lot of the dressmaking and doll-making I have done over the years and I never fail to enjoy reading it.
This is a totally marvelous book for children about ten and the adults who are lucky enough to read it. The doll Hitty is a charmer and her attitudes throughout the book are exemplary. It was my all-time favorite when I was ten.
