Twig by Elizabeth Orton Jones

Twig was just a plain, ordinary little girl who lived on the fourth floor of a "high sort of house" in the city. The backyard behind that house was Twig's little world. It was a bare little world, with nothing but a dandelion and a stream of drainpipe water to make it beautiful; with nobody but Old Boy, the ice-wagon horse, Old Girl, the cat, and the Sparrows, to keep Twig company.

But one day, out in the alley, Twig found an empty tomato can, with pictures of bright red tomatoes all round it. When it was upside down, it looked like a pretty little house, just the right size for a fairy! Twig stood it upside down next to the dandelion, not far from the stream. And this is the story of what happened in and around that little house one Saturday afternoon.

A story full of magic, full of fun, full of fantasy interwoven with reality, and full of the kind of tenderness which belongs most particularly to the very young. A story both boys and girls will love.

Ages 6-12



More About This Product

Twig was a long time customer favorite at Bella Luna Toys, and it was disappointing when it went out-of-print in recent years. Now back in print in a new paperback edition, I am delighted to be able to re-introduce this delightful story back to our collection of Waldorf books for children and kids.

our favorite book by Denise (on 6/11/11)
"This book was truly delightful from beginning to end. I was able to completely capture the attention of my just turned three-year-old son in addition to my six-year-old daughter. Twig is magical, sweet, playful, imaginative, funny and beautiful. I will cherish this book and enjoy giving it as gifts. I just wish that there was a stack of books that would come close in comparison for us to look forward to. You are so lucky if you have this book to look forward to reading for the first time! "
