I am 35 years old and can still remember my mother reading us these story every night. No matter how many times we heard them over and over it was the best time we spent together. I now have a daugter of my own and can't wait to read the same storys to her. I loved all the funny things she would do the kids to get them to listen to their parents.

I have read this tory to students in my class ranging from kindergartners to third graders. All of my students have enjoyed the story and went on to read the other titles as well. The humor used in the book is very good. Children can relate to some of the problems Miss Piggly Wiggly cures. We even used her humor in class as we decided how some of our personalities fit with the children's in the story. I would highly recommend this story as a read aloud for younger children or independent reading for third grade and higher.

This review is of the HARDCOVER version of HELLO, MRS. PIGGLE-WIGGLE. Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle lives a couple of blocks over on Vinemaple Street. Her house is a popular gathering place for school-aged children and in one story, she even hosts a meeting of the Cub Scouts. Her deceased husband was a pirate and from him, she has obtained all manner of wonderful pills and powders that help reform basically good children with troublesome habits. In one of the stories in this book a couple of her Leadership Pills help reform neighborhood bullies; she opines that bullies are generally children whose bodies have grown ahead of their personalities and the pills help even things out. In another, a delicious candy stick helps reform whispering girls of their gossipy habits and in so doing, their snobbishness toward a hardworking but poor and needy girl. Are these stories period pieces? Well, the mothers always seem to be home making wonderful treats like chocolate cake and the fathers are surprisingly easy-going once they have been cured of their workaday crankiness with a good meal. Despite the magic pills and powders, the basic Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle strategy of giving ornery kids a taste of their own medicine that was developed in the first two books still holds true. Parents might be interested to know that the Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle stories were developed by Betty MacDonald (THE EGG AND I; ONIONS IN THE STEW) and some of her sly adult outlook makes it into these stories, too. I made a point of buying, used, the hardcopy volume with its wonderful Hilary Knight (illustrator for ELOISE) drawings. I cannot vouch for later paperbacks. Curiously, the listing for this hardbound edition PICTURES Hilary Knight as illustrator but LISTS another illustrator. I believe this discrepancy has already been pointed out to Amazon. At any rate, these are fun stories and children and grownups continue to enjoy them.

For me, it is primarily about having the book I remember reading as a child and the artist being Hilary Knight. The cover on the website shows Hilary Knight's work. The book I received is a huge disappointment because the artist is not Hilary Knight. Therefore, it is no longer a classic. What made the book totally original are the drawings by Hilary Knight. I don't even want this book unless I get the original artist's issue.

This series was among my favorites as a child. Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's innovative ways of correcting improper behavior in children will amuse young readers while instilling notions of what is right and wrong. The books are very humorous and light-hearted.

I love the Piggle-Wiggle books! I was first introduced to the seres when my third grade teacher read them to the class. I have enjoyed reading them to my own students since then...Children love hearing about the different tales and adventures of the children who are friends of Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle! The stories come alive for all people who hear these stories because it's so easy to relate to. I think we all can remember a time when we had trouble interrupting or not cleaning up after ourselves!!!! These stories are a true treasure!!

Bought this for my daughter (started with one, ended up getting all the original ones from Betty MacDonald, not the one co-written with someone else when Betty passed away). My daughter is 10 and needed 5th grade reading level books for AR testing. All three Piggle-Wiggle books fit the bill. She loved them all (and she likes the kind of books like Dork Diaries, Wimpy Kid, etc.). Definitely recommended.

This is a delightful and funny book for children. I read it a few years ago and thought to myself, this is a funny book, but adults shouldn't really read it because they might not like it like me. It's childish humor about an old lady who likes children. Buy this for your children.
