Lucie, a curious little girl, is searching for her pocket handkerchief, when she comes across a little house high in the hills. Her knock on the door is answered by Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, who invites her in.
Lucie spends the whole day with Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle helping her with washing and ironing. You see, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle does all the washing and ironing for the animals who live nearby.
As the lovely day comes to a close, Lucie realizes that Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle is a hedgehog.
What is more charming: the delightful story or the enchanting illustrations?
Beatrix Potter, the author and illustrator takes us into an imaginary world where animals wear clothing, talk to one another, make mistakes, learn from their mistakes, and having fantastical adventures. It is lovely to spend a day in Beatrix Potter's world meeting hedgehogs, rabbits, squirrels, kittens, ducks, mice, and toads.
I love the way Beatrix Potter spins her stories. You can't help but smile as you read her tales aloud to your children. Your children will love the stories and the accompanying illustrations. In fact, they will want to hear about Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle again and again. Even her name is fun to say.
Beatrix Potter published her little stories at the beginning of the twentieth century. The stories, set in rural England take us back to a simpler time and invite us to unlock our imaginations.
Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle is the fifth book of Beatrix Potter. May I suggest reading all her books? You see, your family will love them!
