Miss Tizzy wears a purple hat with a white flower in it. She lives in a pink house with an overgrown garden. Parents may thing her peculiar, but the children love her.
Together, Miss Tizzy and the children bake cookies, make pictures for people who have stopped smiling, play dress-up, put on puppet shows and parades, and stretch out on bright quilts in Miss Tizzy's backyard for an evening of singing songs about the moon.
And when Miss Tizzy becomes ill and takes to her bed, the children know just what to do to make her feel missed and loved.
