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 )

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.

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!

Mrs.Little Wiggle

My favorite is the Not Want To Go To Beders! It's so funny! I mean don't they stay up to, like, 5:00 in the morning.

Perfect for long commutes

My 6 year old daughter just LOVED listening to 'Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle' on our drive too and from school this last week. My only regret is that I spent our credits on other books instead of just getting the entire series. This audio book has "created pictures in my mind", as my daughter would say. She loves talking about 'Polly Parrot' and the other life lessons that are presented in the books. I'm hoping listening to books will foster a life long love of reading. ... Now on to the Ramona series!

A moralistic tale...

Story was read well. Lot's of character's and not a lot of difference between voices. In this particular story, we found that it didn't make it confusing for the listener. My kids enjoyed it and wanted to listen to another one. It was reminiscent of the movie Marry Poppins. Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle uses wit and creativity to "cure" kids of their misbehavior. It's cute and funny but I don't love it personally.

Very Very Funny

By Emily (age 8) This book is awesome. I loved the silly cures for each kid. I think my mommy is going to use some on me!
