Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle’s Magic

Our rating: *****

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle is back along with more fun as she produces magical cures for “Thought-You-Said,” interrupting, bad table manners, tattletales, and more!

I enjoyed reading this book again. In the last story somebody finds a “lucky” pirate piece, but you can choose whether to believe it really is or not. Most Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle books have at least some bad language, but, that edited out, the stories are fun. Oh, and sometimes the children aren’t very nice to each other. But anyway, I do like this book.

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle

Our rating: ****

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle lives in an upside down house and married a pirate. She also loves kids, and lets them look for Mr. Piggle-Wiggle’s pirate treasure, which he buried in the backyard before he died. All the parents call her for advice on how to cure their children of bad habits. Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle has hilarious cures for almost anything. How do you cure a boy who won’t pick up his toys? You let him make his room so messy that he can’t get out!

Every chapter is a new cure. There’s Patsy, who won’t take a bath; Dick, who won’t share; and many more. Every one of these “ailments” is cured in a delightfully silly (yet sensible) way. And all the adults and children who are not important to the story have names like “Broomrack” and “Hearthrug”!
