One of my favorite books of all time! She was so resourceful, and I loved how she re-used one kind of thing as something else - it was the kind of thing that excited me to see a familiar object with a new use.

Our next topic at school is based on this book.
Old houses, making peg dolls, woodwork-making wooden furniture,
making Tilly's house- wall papering the rooms adding electricity and making
objects to go in the house. So thank you Faith Jaques for inspiring a class of 5-6 year olds.

One of my favourite childhood stories. Really hoping the parents haven't donated to a church fair
