Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shiloah | 2/16/2014

    " While there are noticeable differences between this one and the previous four actually written by Betty McDonald, we still enjoyed this one tremendously. It was a very fun read aloud. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 2/9/2014

    " Not as good as the originals, but the cures were more timely to kids nowadays. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine Woodman | 2/8/2014

    " Great series of books by a master storyteller--this is not the best tho' "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judith | 1/31/2014

    " The only thing I don't like about these books is, as a mother, I hoped that I could actually get some points I could use. But magic, unfortunately, is not real, so floating papers, invisible paint, regurgitating drawers and surfaces, and dogs that brush their own teeth can't help me cure my own children's --itis and --- disease. However, with enough imagination, I might be able to apply Mrs. PiggleWiggle's cures in a more mundane manner. Otherwise, I love the idea that somewhere there's an adult who completely understands children! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janelle | 1/29/2014

    " Who doesn't love Mrs. Piggle Wiggle?! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanette | 1/20/2014

    " The Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle books were among some of my most treasured books growing up. I was thrilled with the new publication and estatic that the stories were as wonderful as the originals. I seriously think Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle was the original "Super Nanny"! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey Williams | 1/18/2014

    " I read this book because my boy, Jake really liked it. I remember reading Mrs. Piggle Wiggle books when I was his age and enjoyed seeing him getting into it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Georgie K | 1/13/2014

    " I absolutely adored these books when I was younger. Age six or seven, I started reading these books, and I've never stopped loving them. <3! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lupine | 1/12/2014

    " So disappointing. I appreciate the effort by Betty MacDonald's daughter but they did a very poor job of capturing her wit and voice. Mediocre at best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Camie | 1/11/2014

    " I've been reading these with my daughter, who's teacher has been reading them in class. They're excellent little books about a magic grandma-type woman in the neighborhood who all the parents turn to for help with their children's bad manners. Very fun! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashton Hosford | 1/10/2014

    " This was such a fun and enjoyable book. I finished it really quickly becasue it was so entertaining. Would be a fun birthday gift for students. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heidi Hertzog | 12/27/2013

    " While I love Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle book, I was a little disappointed in this book. My understanding is that it was written by one of her daughters of stories her mom told them as children (as with the other Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle book), but something was missing though I couldn't put my finger on it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 11/20/2013

    " I wanted this to be as good as the originals, and while I appreciate the effort, it just lacked the same magic. Maybe it was the absence of Hilary Knight illustrations, or maybe it was just a little bit flat. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 11/20/2013

    " This is the second Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle book I have read, and I did not enjoy it as much as the first (the original Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle). The descriptions of the "illnesses" seem to drag on and on. And while Mrs. Piggle-Wiggles cures are always improbable, these seem ridiculous rather than wise. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 11/12/2013

    " It's a nanny parents hire and she can help with any problem any of the kids have like, Wont brush your teeth cure, and the just one more t.v. show cure. It's a book for anyone too so that's also good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maggie | 11/10/2013

    " I'm so glad that Betty MacDonald's daughter found this book and finished it for her mom. It said that it was the first new Mrs. Piggle Wiggle in 50 years!! It was a really good book, just like all the Mrs. Piggle Wiggle books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelley | 11/3/2013

    " This book has withstood the test of time. I loved it as a young child, and it is still enchanting today. I am a nanny for a precocious 13 month old and she loves the book, or perhaps just the voices I use, who knows? It kept her entertained for both of our ten minute reading times yesterday. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabriel Dubransky | 6/16/2013

    " I liked the part where the girl could only use her hands and feet to finish her project and the last chapter - Mrs. Piggle Wiggle's birthday party. This book was funny and silly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 3/25/2013

    " How could I have missed this? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annette | 12/5/2012

    " A nice addition to the series. I'm glad that MacDonald's daughter decided to publish it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nix | 11/28/2012

    " Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle is such a classic! I think that this book (as with all the other books in this series) emphasizes imagination. Actually, I don't think - I KNOW. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 9/9/2012

    " Same Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle magic. =) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 6/23/2011

    " Haha...all her cures are hilarious. I think my favourite is the Tiny-Bite-Takers case. Love these books! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 6/20/2011

    " Pretty funny for me, but I don't know that kids would appreciate the humor, since it's all about curing bad behavior in children. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kpretzler | 5/27/2011

    " Currently reading this to both kids! I love the wacky cures but leads to a great discussion with the kids of these same problems we deal with! Love it! I ordered two more for the summer "

    " Even though this book is extremely old, my kids absolutely loved it. My 4 year old, who sometimes has a hard time with chapter books, was completely enthralled with this one. It is a great read-aloud. I wish I had a Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle to help parent my children. "
