Staff Reviews

Miss Twiggley was my absolute favorite book while I was growing up. It still brings delight every time I see the beautiful illustrations. This story follows funny old Miss Twiggley who lives in a tree. She’s terrified of other people and sends her dog out to run errands, but when a flood threatens the whole town, she finds that her compassion is stronger than her fear. If you love a good story about someone who might feel a little different than everyone else, you will love this book!


— From Joyful June Staff Picks


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... Old Miss Twiggley, Was friendly with bears. They shed on the sofa, she said, But who cares? 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.
