The Tales of Mrs. Tiggy-winkle

  
The tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle was first published in 1905 and has been a firm favourite ever since.   The story is about a small child called Lucie who loses a pinafore and her handkerchieves and she goes out looking for them. As she looks high up on a hill she sees some white clothes lying on the grass.
 
She climbs up the hill and finds a strange little washerwoman, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle.  This little washerwoman had Lucie's handkerchieves all freshly laundered, as well as many other interesting items such as stockings for a hen!
 
Among the other peculiarities about the washwoman, she was wearing an excessive number of hair pins, all it seemed, sticking the wrong end out.  Lucie helps Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle deliver laundry to the local residents and eventually all that is left is lucie's missing handkerchieves and pinny.

 
She wants to thank Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, but all that she sees is a hedgehog running down the path.  Lucie is left wondering if Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle was just a hedgehog!
