    Mrs Piggle Wiggle is back almost 50 years after the original author s death Betty MacDonald s daughter found one unpublished story and ideas for others, and wrote Happy Birthday Mrs Piggle Wiggle, the fifth book in the series The first story, The Just One More TV Show Cure is obviously written by the original MacDonald and is the best story in the book The others are written in the same style but lack that something that makes it stand out like the other Mrs Piggle Wiggle stories Sti Mrs Piggle Wiggle is back almost 50 years after the original author s death Betty MacDonald s daughter found one unpublished story and ideas for others, and wrote Happy Birthday Mrs Piggle Wiggle, the fifth book in the series The first story, The Just One More TV Show Cure is obviously written by the original MacDonald and is the best story in the book The others are written in the same style but lack that something that makes it stand out like the other Mrs Piggle Wiggle stories Still, this is a decent collection of stories, but now I want to re read the other Mrs Piggle Wiggle books

    I really liked this The chapter wrote by the original author was obviously better, but the authors daughter did really well with the other chapters too Definitely worth it to read this

    This is the second Mrs Piggle Wiggle book I ve read to my daughter My wife was a fan from childhood but I had never heard of Mrs Piggle Wiggle before Apparently the first one I read was written back in the 50 s by Betty MacDonald whereas this one is comprised of a previously unpublished story and ideas for others that were found by her daughter The story outlines were fleshed out into new installments in the franchise My 8 year old, being way smarter than me, immediately picked up theThis is the second Mrs Piggle Wiggle book I ve read to my daughter My wife was a fan from childhood but I had never heard of Mrs Piggle Wiggle before Apparently the first one I read was written back in the 50 s by Betty MacDonald whereas this one is comprised of a previously unpublished story and ideas for others that were found by her daughter The story outlines were fleshed out into new installments in the franchise My 8 year old, being way smarter than me, immediately picked up thecontemporary feel of this book And as it turns out, we both liked this one better perhaps because of the modernity, perhaps for some other reason that is a credit to Anne MacDonald Canham than the truly authentic Mrs Piggle book previously read There was only one story the one about a kid too cautious to attempt anything from something legitimately intimidating like a climbing a tree to merely playing basketball with friends that we found to be a total dud Other than that we were charmed throughout The concept of a woman with magical cures for annoying childhood behavior and vices is a timeless winner, so I can see why these books originals and new entries charm multiple generations of readers

    Happy Birthday, Mrs Piggle WigglePlot Eight short stories about bratty kids that they re parents don t seem to have the answers or the brains to solve in their different bad behaviors, so they turn to the smartest woman that is witch because I think we already know in the neighborhood to cure them At the end all the kid s and parent s throw her one of the BEST parties I think I ve ever read about in a book With a surprise at the end My Thoughts Since this book is so short I ll just hit o Happy Birthday, Mrs Piggle WigglePlot Eight short stories about bratty kids that they re parents don t seem to have the answers or the brains to solve in their different bad behaviors, so they turn to the smartest woman that is witch because I think we already know in the neighborhood to cure them At the end all the kid s and parent s throw her one of the BEST parties I think I ve ever read about in a book With a surprise at the end My Thoughts Since this book is so short I ll just hit on each on these stories briefly The Just One More TV Show Cure Saw this one used on the Cosby show Yeah, I know but back then it was STILL a good show It was used on Rudy Same results This one I might try if I was a parent It seems the most logical of the cures to actually work.The Won t Brush Teeth Cure This one actually worked on ME After reading how moldy Betsy s teeth were and how foul her breath was, I actually no lie got up and cleaned out my own mouth I even vowed to set a time aside in the day to do teeth mantience.The Insult Care This is the start of where we get the proof that Mrs Piggle Wiggle is a witch I don t know why these books shy from saying that s what she is, because that is what she is As for magic paper that flies up to the ceiling with glow in the dark insult words as a cure, I don t think that was the cure If you look at the illustration, it s something muchsinister going on I think don t think ANY of that was a dream, that those papers could form shapes and hands I think this cure was to scare the kid to death If you thought Miss Piggle Wiggle was all tea parties, treasure hunts, and just this sweet, little, old, lady you d be wrong There was another book Mrs Piggle Wiggle where her TRUE personality actually does show and she pretends to be what she is and her alter ego comes out in a game Yes Miss Piggle Wiggle has a DARK SIDE people Believe that The Picky Eater Cure Magic crystals that turn every food into noodles was this cure I probably would have just given him noodles every single day until he got sick of them Same result You don t need the neighborhood witch to figure this one out And I thought the mother would have thought of this one.The Afraid to Try Cure Now with this one, I was frustrated because again you didn t need Mrs Piggle Wiggle s deception I can see where you wouldn t want a punk for a kid, but Jonathan is a typical introvert Sports are NOT his thing and that s OK He wants to be a veterinarian Maybe he s just not the adventurous type He s the bookworm type I m the book worm type Did they ever think that maybe he just DIDN T WANT TO skate board down the side of a house That s why he made excuses about it I m an introvert so I know how pushy extroverts can be when they want you to try things that you just aren t interested in.The Messy Stuff and Cram Cure Again,proof of Miss Piggle Wiggle s dark side First, I thought invisible paint sound s cool Then I didn t quite get what it had to do with anything in this one The mother paints the furniture invisible I thought it was to show Katy how atrocious her room was so that s literally all she saw And I winced at this one because there is NO WAY with all that trash and half eaten food that that room wasn t chock full of roaches And I can not STAND roaches They were probably even in the bed with her So again, deception what that paint really did was make the furniture in Katy s room reactive So again the cure was to scare the kid to death Slick, but I m starting to see your game Miss Piggle Wiggle If I was a parent and my kid s room looked like this do you really think I d let them out of it until they cleaned it These parents are WAY TOO SOFT and PASSIVE They call each other when what they really should be doing is taking charge in their own homes.The Never Finish Cure Ok so this one I can relate to I m not as bad as Janie, but with so many things around me fighting to grab my attention I can easily go from one to another It takes a lot of practice sometimes to focus on one project when you have SO many daily Interesting enough here s another dark cure Miss Piggle Wiggle uses a powder to control this girl s hand s so they won t do but one thing at a time I ll just let that sink in She has a powder that lets her CONTROL body parts Then we get to the party, which I just have to say is AMAZING Can I have a costume party please The only thing I was disappointed about was that it wasn t at night in like this Halloween themed sky building that was in her back yard There re streamers, balloons, a eight layer cake with candy sprinkled on the top There s punch bowls of pink lemonade, potato chips, and candy Two dishpans of fruit salad There s a pizza AND ice cream truck And I can just image the pizza taste just like Show Biz s from back in the day There s wagon loads of presents I mean why won t somebody throw me a party like this Then her husband leaves her a special surprise that she finds in a trunk Which did he die at sea I ve always wondered what happened to Mr Piggle Wiggle It ends with a parade and it truly is the perfect party Rating 7 It s funny that when I first read these books my little innocent mind didn t pick up on some of the things I m starting to theorize on I read these as a sweet, elderly, little, old, lady in the neighborhood that just loved kids Never realizing what was underneath that Never just taking the time to stop and think about these cures

    Mrs Piggle Wiggle takes a final bow in this collection, continuing to problem solve the manners of the neighborhood children Though still a collection of short stories, this book has an anomaly that I really liked One of the children suffers from Afraid to Try he s shown to be a good kid, responsible and careful, but he likes to hang back and watch others do things sometimes for a long time before he s willing to try if he s ever willing to try and the other children make fun of him fo Mrs Piggle Wiggle takes a final bow in this collection, continuing to problem solve the manners of the neighborhood children Though still a collection of short stories, this book has an anomaly that I really liked One of the children suffers from Afraid to Try he s shown to be a good kid, responsible and careful, but he likes to hang back and watch others do things sometimes for a long time before he s willing to try if he s ever willing to try and the other children make fun of him for it If this were the usual, Mrs Piggle Wiggle and her magical cure would show up and help change the child s mind so they wouldn t want to do whatever it is any but not this time This time, the boy shows the world that all his care and attention has in fact given him a great head start for when trouble comes and, though he also learns to not hang back completely, it could be argued that it is the rest of the children that receive the cure As one who likes to understand what I m doing as much as possible before I attempt, I love that this wasn t shown to be a fault, but rather a useful traitNo content issues, though some of the cures involve the kids having nightmares, there are no injuries, just words things yelling at them.

    This book was quite like the other Piggle Wiggle books I have only listened to 2 this past decade but this one seemed to take quite a bit directly from them and as a result read like a ghost written sequel after an author s death it had the right elements and fit in, but added nothing new nor even seemed to use notes of new stories but simply rewrote existing tales For example, the fix with the dog seemed like and evenimplausible version of the pig storyimplausible likely based This book was quite like the other Piggle Wiggle books I have only listened to 2 this past decade but this one seemed to take quite a bit directly from them and as a result read like a ghost written sequel after an author s death it had the right elements and fit in, but added nothing new nor even seemed to use notes of new stories but simply rewrote existing tales For example, the fix with the dog seemed like and evenimplausible version of the pig storyimplausible likely based on the depth of detail on how it would workthan the situation itself but a copy none the less , and there was a magic cure or was it two that could have been done without magic just about as well and too seemed like a repeat of a fix I had already heard
