“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
