The New York Times praised the book by saying, "Miss Jones, who knows children well, has told stories with warmth and simplicity."
The book was so popular at the time Elizabeth moved to the town of Mason, New Hampshire that Elizabeth herself was known as "Twig" to her neighbors; many residents didn't know her as anything else.
TWIG was reissued in a 60th Anniversary Edition by Purple House Press in 2002. It is still in print in paperpback, (ISBN 978-1-930900-45-5) and as an ebook.
