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—and so does her dog, Puss—with a warm and happy ending.

Charming Miss Twiggley, a dear and unforgettable character first introduced to readers in 1966, is back in all her glory in this sparkling new edition faithfully reproduced from the original story.
