    Book details

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?"

Beatrix Potter is one of the world's best-loved children's authors of all time. From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902) she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs Tiggy-winkle, Mr Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten. Her humorous, lively tales and beautiful illustrations have become a natural part of childhood.A source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist.

    Wonderful classic! Every little girl should read this book! And every adult too! I prefered having all of the books like this as seperate books, instead of buying one book with all of the novels in one go. I can imagine that it's that they're seperate that makes my daughter favour a few so much.She can bring it anywhere she likes as it's so small. It fits perfectly in a large pocket and can be read when ever there a dry moment. It has always been mine and my daughter's favourite story. Beautifully written, stunning drawings and the type the text is written in is very fitting to this classic story.

    I am surprised noone has reviewed this little tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle! Well, I guess if you like any Beatrix Potter's book you like them all. Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle is as delectable a creation as any other in the world of Peter Rabbit. Personally, I find this one one of the less good story. The tale is not the heaviest on the cautionary side among Beatrix Potter's work but does feature a very courteous young girl and an equally well-mannered and unassuming hedgehog. The plot is very very slim with scantly any unfolding. That couples to the lack of the child-like escapade of tales such as "Peter Rabbit" and "Tom Kitten" makes it somewhat less engaging. The illustration is also somewhat lower in standard, and the fact that one of the two main characters is a little girl does not help as Beatrix Potter's art was always weaker when it comes to depicting human. Whilst the text does give delightful and very vivid and impressionistic descriptions of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle I think the character is let down simply by the fact that a hedgehog translates into a fully-gowned two-legged creature less well than a rabbit or a kitten (Peter Rabbit was not even decked in full human raiment - just a jacket and a pair of shoes). Some illustrations depict her really well but others - where Beatrix Potter has had to resort to distoring her anatomy - simply look quite awkward - a departure from the realistic way in which Beatrix Potter always draw the anatomy of her animal characters, a treatment I think which has given the books their distinct charm.

    Its easy to fall into the trap about books which your own children read and enjoyed in thinking that the same reaction will be made by one's grandchildren. Unfortunately this particular grandchild was not enthralled by the book and perhaps, sadly it is now rather dated. This won't stop me trying it out on the other grandchildren who revel in Enid Blyton Books which I would have thought dated!

    This Beatrix Potter book is a lovely story for little ones. The book has a lovely presentation, with the original drawings.

    Bought for a youngster for whom English is not her first language and as an aid to get her reading. She loved "Peter Rabbit" and will like this too although the story does not have quite the same appeal!
