Publisher's Summary

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle lives in an upside-down house and smells like cookies. She was even married to a pirate once. Most of all, she knows everything about children. She can cure them of any ailment. Patsy hates baths. Hubert never puts anything away. Allen eats v-e-r-y slowly. Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle has a treatment for all of them.

What the Critics Say

"A charming reading of a timeless classic." (AudioFile)
"Each of these stories has obviously been told over and over to delighted children, who must throng around their author as the youngsters in the book do around Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle herself." (The Chicago Tribune )

    Our family loves Mrs. Piggle Wiggle. The narrator is excellent too. The stories are fun and relevant. This is listened to again and again at our house.

    I have been an avid Bibliophile since I learned how to read at 4 years old. I listen to audiobooks every day.

    "Light hearted and fun!"

    I remember reading this when I was young and have enjoyed sharing it with kids as I've gotten older. Who can resist Mrs. Piggle Wiggle? She's the "fairy godmother" all kids dream of at one time or other. Who would love going to an upside down house where you can hunt for treasure, bake cookies, or do any of the other delightful things the kids do at Mrs. Piggle Wiggle's. Would be great for a family road trip!

    Story
    "Aways Put A Smile On My Face"

    Children story is always enjoyable even for an adult. I enjoy the story while I do my cooking and cleaning, and the story reminds me to be always take it easy on my children. This is my first with the author, I'm looking forward for another venture by the author, and Karen White is always at her best.

    Story
    "Read out loud first?"

    Was so fun to listen to! But I might read this one out loud first before listening to. We do audiobooks in the car. Kids could've benefitted a little from having some prior exposure.

    "Delightful Story"

    I recently had laryngitis, and this story was scheduled on our read aloud section in our homeschool curriculum. I decided to purchase the audio book and save my voice for reading and math lessons. We enjoyed so much cuddling on the couch and listening to the wonderful performance. The narrator told tales of the naughty children just like aunt.

    Story
    "Dated"

    Yes, we remember it fondly from decades ago, but this story is no longer funny or relevent to the concerns of kids or parents. Mrs. P "cures" bad children by tricking them into being "good," i.e. doing housework (for girls, of course), cleaning their rooms, and not being rude.

    Reader is just so-so. Don't waste your money.

    Story
    "My children love it!"
    What made the experience of listening to Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle the most enjoyable?

    All three of my children were glued to this story. My six year-old has listened to it four times already.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle handles childhood problems is creative!
