Mrs. Tiggy Winkle is a hedgehog. The first book was published in 1905, and the books have been a hit ever since. Beatrix Potter thought her books would be more popular with girls since the main characters are female. Due to this, the books focus mostly on household chores. Given the period in which they were written, this is understandable, but even boys would like these books today since everyone is expected to help around the house.


Rare for books from the time, Mrs. Tiggy Winkle is available in Braille - the raised bumps that the blind use to read. This allows even blind children to enjoy the books. It’s often used to teach about household chores, and has been featured on a lot of things for the nursery and on porcelain figures.
