Synopses & Reviews
Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle has a trick up her sleeveMrs. Piggle-Wiggle loves everyone, and everyone loves her right back. The children love her because she is lots of fun. Their parents love her because she can cure children of absolutely any bad habit. The treatment are unusual, but they work! Who better than a pig, for instance, to teach a piggy little boy table manners? And what better way to cure the rainy-day "waddle-I-do's" than hunt for a pirate treasure in Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's upside-down house?
About the Author
Betty MacDonald (1908–1958) was the author of the beloved children's books about Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle:
- Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle
- Hello, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle
- Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Magic
- Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Farm
The Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle stories were first told to her two daughters.
After Betty MacDonald's death, her daughter Anne MacDonald Canham found a never-before-published Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle story along with notes for other stories among her mother's possessions. This was the beginning of Happy Birthday, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle, the first new Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle book in fifty years.
