Description - The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle by Beatrix Potter

A consistent best-seller!

The Tale of Mrs Tiggy-winkle was first published in 1905, and is as charming today as it was then.

This is the tale of a hidden home high in the hills, which is discovered one day by a little girl called Lucie, who is in search of her missing pocket handkerchiefs. She knocks on the tiny door, and meets Mrs Tiggy-winkle who does all the washing and ironing for the neighbouring animals. Lucie spends a lovely day helping her, and it's only right at the end of the day that she realises Mrs Tiggy-winkle is a hedgehog!

This is a beloved classic tale from the masterful storyteller, Beatrix Potter, complete with her colour illustrations.

Author Biography - Beatrix Potter

Beatrix Potter is regarded as one of the world's best-loved children's authors of all time. From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902) she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs Tiggy-winkle, Mr Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten. Her humorous, lively tales and beautiful illustrations have become a natural part of childhood. A source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist.
