The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle Summary

The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle by Beatrix Potter

It's been 110 years since Frederick Warne published Beatrix Potter's very first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, and in celebration, we are delighted to be publishing special editions of her entire body of work. Unlike the traditional little white books, these editions have delightful colourful covers and specially designed endpapers. And to make them extra special, we have included a publisher's note to tell you all about the history of how each book came to be. The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle was first published in 1905, and is as charming today as it was then. It tells the tale of a hidden home high in the hills. It 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! The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle is number six in Beatrix Potter's series of 23 little books.
