Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Twig was a plain, ordinary little girl who found an empty tomato can. When it was upside down, the can looked like a house just the right size for a fairy. This is the story of what happens in and around that little house one afternoon. Illustrations.

schoolmarm librarian, April 18, 2010 (view all comments by schoolmarm librarian)
This is one of those books that I checked out from my school library multiple times. Then it went out of print and was a vague memory -- almost a dream. Did it really exist? I cheered when it [briefly] came back into print in 2001. Twig is a young girl living in a tenement house. Her life seems somewhat circumscribed and bordering on dismal, yet she has a big heart and bigger imagination. One day she descends to her backyard and has a day full of magical adventures. "Twig" deserves to be a children's classic, yet few people know it and it is once again out of print. If you know a girl in early elementary school who loves fairies (and fairies are big business these days, with no limit to pink, sparkly merchandise) do her a favor and buy this quiet little book. It's a gem!

I first read my mother's old copy of this book when I was in elementary school. It's the most wonderful fantasy story about a self confidant little girl with the greatest imagination who draws you into the world she inhabits in her own backyard...I loved this book as a kid and I love it now...as a kid I felt I also could relate, since I liked to make up adventures while playing outside. Twig was an inspiration for that kind of play!
