16 Reviews
It's impossible to upset Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle. Whatever happens, she takes it in stride, and usually laughs about it, too. If you give her a gift, she will treasure it. If you break something, she'll show you how to fix it. If you tell her what you dreamed last night, she'll listen -- and even help you tell the parts you forget.

She knows what to do about things that drive most grown-ups crazy. When Mrs. Burbank is in despair because her children have become Thought-You-Saiders, or Mrs. Hamilton losed her patience with two Talltetales, or Mrs. Rogers' sanity and crockery are threatened as sharon turns into a Heedless Breaker, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle calmly produces a pill or a potion or a powder that takes care of the problem. (And all of her medicines taste delicious!)

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's helpful, hilarious magic is irresistible -- and as funny as it is effective.
