Mrs Piggle-Wiggle helps fix children who have gone astray in a humorous way. Check how she does it in her farm. First published in 1957, illustrated by the famed Maurice Sendak. For ages 8 - 10 ( )

I want to *be* Mrs. P., magic or no. But when I read about her and the children, I want the magic. This is a 2.5 because of Sendak's illustrations, but if you're not absolutely devoted to the whole series, you can skip this. It just goes on and on about natural consequences of not doing your best, because there's less room for error when away from doting parents and out in the country. ( )

Mrs. Piggle Wiggle is a nice old lady who "cures" children from their bad behaviors or bad habits. In this third book, she moves from her upside down town house to the farm. I would recommend this book to 3rd-5th grade readers. ( )
