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.

Sweet story but too long and plot not balanced Aug 10, 2008
Sweet story about helping others in their time of need, and I love the old-timey feel of the illustrations. I just wish the text could have been tightened up. Aside from it being too wordy, I also felt like it took too long to get to the meat of the story, then the ending felt rushed.
I have finally found my childhood favorite Apr 22, 2008
I have looked for this wonderful book for over 20 years. I wanted to read it to my children when they were younger. I will have to read it to my future grandchildren. I remember sitting on my mothers lap as she read this book to me and my little brothers. She would sometimes try to skip a page to get us to bed a little earlier but, we always would correct her because we all had it memorized. I can't wait to have it in my library.

"Miss Twiggley's Tree" is an adorable story. It's opened my child's mind to the idea of living in a tree with animal friends. It's also a sweet story about not judging people by their covers. It's become a family favorite and I've given copies to friends. The illustrations are fun.
Classic Oct 21, 2007
This is a classic children's book. It was a well worn favorite of mine when I was a child and now enjoy it with my great neice! I have been told that my generosity and love to entertain resembles that of Miss Twiggley, so it must have made a great impression! The pictures keep the chilren's attention and allows for lots of interaction. The story flows easily with its sing-song rhythm. I can assure you if this is on your children's bookshelf it won't go untouched!

This is a book that I remembered from my childhood, and it was one of my favorites!!!! My parents had given away the book and have wanted to find it for years. I am so happy to have found and purchased this book again so I can share what a great book it is with my two daughters. I even bought 3 copies (one for me and one for each of my daughters). They love the book as much as I did at their age!!! :-)
