New York: The Viking Press, 1946 (1947) dj. Hardcover - A very early printing of this delightful story of a little wooden doll, winner of the Newbery Award in 1947. "When Great-granny Brown packed up and moved to the Women's City Club in Boston, Miss Hickory was faced with the problem of spending a severe New Hampshire winter alone. This might not have been so bad if Miss Hickory had not been a country woman whose body was an apple-wood twig and whose head was a hickory nut. This is the story of how she suvived those months, in the company of neighbors like Crow, Bull Frog, Ground Hog, and a host of others." Illustrated throughout with charming lithographs by Ruth Gannett. 123 pp.
Condition: Very good in a fair dust jacket with some overall rubbing and wear, price-clipped.
