Hitty Preble doll with booklet
Each Hitty Preble flat 6½-inch tall wooden doll comes with a child-level booklet telling the story of Hitty's life on Great Cranberry Island, and how Rachel Field came to write Hitty, Her First Hundred Years. It also includes three complete paper outfits that you cut out, and a suggestion list of what to write to friends and pen pals when mailing your Hitty Preble.
AND we guarantee that every Hitty Preble was made by a Maine craftsman, and has really slept overnight in the actual Preble house on Great Cranberry Island, Maine, just as original Hitty did, in the story, all those long years ago!
You receive both doll and booklet
This video introduces you to Maine's Cranberry Isles, and shows how they influenced Rachel Field's poetry and prose.
You'll see the actual Preble house on Great Cranberry Island, which Rachel used as the setting for Hitty, Her First Hundred Years -- where Hitty was first carved for little Phoebe Preble.
You'll hear Hitty's Theme -- a beautiful, innocent, haunting new song written exclusively for this video.
And you'll learn about our Hitty Preble project, and watch as Hitty Preble sails off to a new owner, and more exciting adventures.
(Doll shown on cover is only a photo.
Actual doll is not included with DVD.)
This video had its world premiere at the
Hitty and Friends
Tenth Anniversary Reunion
in Williamsburg, Virginia
31 October 2004
Great Cranberry Island, Maine is Big Hitty's Home too! Chainsaw artist Michelle delValle donated Big Hitty to the Great Cranberry Island Historical Museum in 2005.
We took these exclusive photos of Big Hitty visiting the original Preble House, and other spots on the island, and made them into beautiful note cards.
The cards are blank inside, for you to write your own sentiments according to the occasion.
You receive a set of eight 4" x 6" note cards, one of each pose shown, with envelopes.
