Technically this is three books in one but I love her. I used to read these stories to my mother-in-law's first grade class and just had the chance to re-read them and still love them.

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle is a magical friend to children, with her upside-down house and delicious cookies that are always waiting for you. She’s also a wonderful help to parents, who often don’t know how to solve the problems of parenthood.

When I was young I loved learning Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle’s “cures” for naughty children’s problems, such as not putting away toys, answering back, and refusing to take a bath. Her cures were ridiculous and magical, and they were funny.

However, as an adult, reading three volumes of such stories in The Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle Treasury by Betty MacDonald became tiring. In some respects, the sequels failed to live up to the original, and I was horribly disappointed. They were also horribly dated. I can't imagine I'll be reading these to my son anytime soon.

Does anyone have Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's number? I have a small boy, and I could really use someone like Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle in my corner. ( )
