Her print gown was tucked up, and she was wearing a large apron over her striped petticoat. Her little black nose went sniffle, sniffle, snuffle, and her eyes went twinkle, twinkle; and underneath her cap—where Lucie had yellow curls—that little person had PRICKLES! Lucie is a very good little girl but she does have trouble keeping hold of her pocket handkerchiefs. She tries asking all the animals on the farm if they’ve seen them but then she spies a glimpse of white up on the hill.  Who should she find there but an extraordinary washer woman called Mrs Tiggy-Winkle and look what she has in her basket! One of the world’s greatest children’s writers and illustrators, Beatrix Potter created some of the most recognisable characters in English literature, including Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck and Benjamin Bunny.  Today Beatrix Potter's original twenty-three tales are still published by Frederick Warne, alongside a wide range of other formats including baby books, sound books, christening gifts and more. These original editions bring the world of Beatrix Potter to life just as readers have enjoyed them for generations. The Tale of Mrs Tiggy-Winkle is the sixth in her series of charming stories.
