Publisher Comments:

Why did Miss Twiggley live in a tree? Why did she send her dog, Puss, out to do the shopping? Why did she always run away and hide when people came to visit? And it was rumored that Miss Twiggley had even more peculiar habits...<P> Old Miss Twiggley, Was friendly with bears. "They shed on the sofa," she said, "But who cares?"<P> And was it true, as the mayor's wife had heard, that she actually slept in her hat? "Simply disgraceful!" they said. But when a hurricane hits the town and the water rises, everyone is grateful to Miss Twiggley and her tree. Even better, Miss Twiggley herself learns a very important lesson, with a warm and happy ending.

This book is so fun to read out loud and the illustrations are fabulous. The rhyming verse has great rhythm. Other than being a great read the story also gives children the example of not judging people too quickly who seem to be different as well as showing how communities can come together in a crisis. My 5 year old loves to read it again and again. This was one of my favorites as a girl and it was out of print for years. So glad it's back!
