Carved from a block of mountain ash a hundred years before, the six-and-a-halfinch doll now sits secure in the antique shop window and writes her memoirs. She recounts the adventures she had with many different people in places around the world. Illustrations show Hitty in many styles of clothing in her life thus far.
A child's bedtime prayer asks for blessings on things that are familiar to small children with such lines as, “Bless other children, far and near, And keep them safe and free from fear.” Brief lines of the prayer are illustrated with full-page, reverent golden- toned drawings.
