MRS PIGGLE-WIGGLE is an young children's book that begins a series that is nearly 50 years old, but the subjects are timeless. Mrs Piggle-Wiggle is a very round and jovial old lady who lives in an upside down house, smells like cookies, and loves children.  She used to be married to a pirate and has a back yard full of treasure.  Children love her too, and find their days filled with fun whenever they are around her.  But she countenances no bad behavior.  Best part of that is her "cures" for all different behavior issues. Each chapter has a child doing something naughty.  Their parents are hard pressed to solve these issues on their own.  A phone call to Mrs Piggle-Wiggle provides an fun, interesting and very remarkable solution that sent this reader into fits of laughter at times.  As practical solutions, they definitely make sense.  Each chapter would be fun to read with children to set up a possible fun discussion with your own child or grandchild.  Looking forward to reading more adventures with this lovely, funny old lady!

Mrs. Piggle Wiggle written by Betty Macdonald and pictures by Hilary Knight. Mrs. Piggle Wiggle’s house is built upside down the roof sticks strait down in the ground and everything follows the porch is upside down. It is brown everything is turned right side up in side of course could you imagine trying to eat diner upside down or sleep. Mrs. Piggle Wiggle is a genius everyone who knows here says, she knows cures for everything like not putting toys away, talking back, selfishness and many more. Her personal appearance is she is very small and has a hump on here back, Mrs. Piggle Wiggle has sparkly dark brown eyes and hair she keeps long and brown. I would recommend this book to children ages 6-10 it is a great children’s book I think your child would love it. Betty Macdonald has truly out done here self in this novel it could even be a book for children older than that.

This book is great for today. Story is of a time when kids actually played without technology. I read this in 2nd grade 15 years ago. I read it to my 4 year old and he loves it. Silly antics and great imagination.

This is the book that got me reading as a child. My first grade teacher read it aloud for my class, and I loved it! I borrowed a copy from a friend on the bus ride home, and devoured the book. As a mother, I enjoy the book just as well. My five- and three-year-olds beg me to read Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle to them. The stories are whimsical and full of hyperbole, and the vocabulary is excellent.

This is a wonderful Fiction book. My favorite ch. is The Never Want To Go To Bedders cure. I like it because I never want to go to bed. I also enjoy staying up late & playing games instead of going to bed. Even though you need your sleep. I absolutely love this book. I absolutely hate going to bed.

After reading this book, my kids have learned a fun way to clean their room and make their beds. This book shows how silly being selfish or arguing really are. A fun family read.

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle is like every child's grandma who never scolds, spanks or ridicules, but deals with children in a positive and reasonable way to get them to do the right thing, and that's smart.

I loved the Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle series as a child, and now my 8 year old daughter enjoys reading the books as well! Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle has wonderful lessons for children that are full of humor. I wish she had written even more books...

Our group enjoyed the collection of cures that Mrs. Piggle Wiggle created for children in need of help for not wanting to clean their rooms, selfishness...and a group favorite- not wanting to take baths 'The Radish Cure'. Mrs. Piggle Wiggle was very clever and inventive. We liked how the children didn't even realize that they were being cured of their bad habits because they were having so much fun with Mrs. Piggle Wiggle in her upside- down house.

I have two boys 6yrs and 9yrs. They just love this book. Each Chapter would spark conversation between the boys. It is a great book to read as a family.

When I was in elementary school 20-odd years ago, my teacher read the Mrs. Piggle Wiggle series to us. It is timeless and witty. I remembered how much I loved these stories when I started reading them to my 5 year old son!

Mrs. Piggle-wiggle uses cunning and creativy to help the children of her small town through their rebelious phases. She does this through a type of parental structure, if jonny only likes to eat off small plates then only give him small plates and don't let him eat off the large ones...ect. These stories are entertaining and certenly made me want to do things the 'right way' least my parents get smart and read the book as well. Piggle-wiggle is a great story for children and teaches them creativity and also respect.
