Read an Excerpt

Once upon a time there was a little girl called Lucie, who lived at a farm called Little-town. She was a good little girl - only she was always losing her pocket-handkerchiefs!

One day little Lucie came into the farm-yard crying - oh, she did cry so! "I've lost my pocket-handkin! Three handkins and a pinny! Have you seen them, Tabby Kitten?"

Lucy is a human character introduced to the Peter Rabbit series, has a bad habit of losing her pocket-handkerchiefs and this time she lost 3. She search for it high and low but couldn't find them anywhere. But what she found something else in the hills while searching and it is a door going straight into the hill. There, she meets an intriguing character with "hairpins" sticking out of her back who calls herself Mrs Tiggy-Winkle, who happens to be a washerwomen for all of the other animals. Turned out her missing hankies and pinny are being wash by Mrs Tiggy-Winkle.This is an interesting book and my favorite part is the ever so questions answered with "it you please'em". Beautiful colourful illustration to enjoy. Weird storyline though but it's an interesting non the less. Kids owuld enjoy this with an awe. Not a keeper but it's a good read.

A little girl named Lucie has lost three pocket-handkerchiefs, and her search brings her to the home of a little hedgehog named Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle. Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle has washed them and done the laundry for many other Beatrix Potter characters. At the end of the story Lucie discovers that Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle is a hedgehog, and others accuse her of dreaming.

I found this book to be elegant and delicate in both its appearance and its content. The illustrations are also refined and give one the sense of being dainty. The story is fanciful and leads the reader on an unexpected journey to meet the animals¿ washerwoman. It is a lovely read aloud, but is quite text heavy, written with old language norms and so requires a certian dedication for a young reader to understand.
