Characters Prudence Fish Hornby, the heroine, is a budding cartographer. Mrs. Iptweet is a quirky multimedia artist and Parade Specialist. Prudy's Mom is a self-proclaimed rock of the family. Gran Modesta was an avid reader and lavender-lover who passed away the previous year. She is sorely missed. Prudy's Dad is a motorcycle-riding, banjo-playing bear of a man who blows into town at irregular intervals to take his daughter out to dinner. Prudy's Aunt Belle is a Professional Recycling Cowgirl Artist who sends her beloved niece Postal Creations.
Prudence Fish Hornby, age nine and a half, is having a hard time. Since the death of her Gran and the divorce of her parents, Prudy finds life lonely, sad, and dull. Nothing interesting happens on Durham Street or at school or at home anymore. The day comes when Prudy can't stand the blahness of her life and she decides to take Drastic Action. This leads her into the path of Mrs. Iptweet, her newest neighbor, and Prudy's life changes for the better.
Together, Mrs. Iptweet and Prudy tap the Power of the Ground, study the Magic and Power of Names, and, against all odds, create the first annual Durham Street Midsummer's Day Mythical Creatures Parade. Prudy and her mom come to terms with Gran's death, and Prudy and her dad have a life-changing conversation.
During the beautiful time fro spring into summer, Prudy learns to dream, discovers her own creative gifts, and finds solace in the art, magic, and adventure of everyday life.
Mrs. Iptweet is Prudy's catalyst, dispensing what she knows to be true: the healing power of creativity, courage, time, and love.
Mrs. Iptweet is a chapter book for ages 7 to 11. 71 illustrations
