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.

Critic Reviews

"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 )

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!

Perfect for the Car

The chapters stand alone as individual stories, so this is the perfect audio book for the car. The morals are not subtle, but neither are they off-putting. The narrator is quite easy to understand, which is particularly important for kids. My children immediately requested the other books as well.

wonderful children's books

This book was very enjoyable. My daughter and I listened to it on a road trip. Each chapter tells a story about a different child learning to overcome normally children's problems such as talking back or not wanting to clean their room or take a bath. The stories were sweet and engaging and emphasize good values without being preachy or old fashion. The reader was also very good. I would say good for ages 4 through second grade. But older children with younger siblings would probably be fine with listening as well.

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.

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.
