  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa B | 3/25/2013

    " Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle has "the magic touch" when it comes from helping children correct their naughty or nasty habits. Each chapter's complete story is hilarious enough to make its "moral" easy to swallow. These are great fun to read aloud with more than one child at a time! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nix | 1/6/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janae | 7/15/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 6/10/2011

    " Not as inventive as the first book. Less imaginative cures because everything is magic powder, which makes it less interesting. Also, the chapters are really long, which isn't really a critique of the book but I like to get the bedtime routine over with, you know? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Radiya | 4/4/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly | 11/14/2010

    " Some children's books withstand the test of time better than others. This one falls in the "others" category. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bobbi | 9/2/2010

    " I read this to my children. They really liked it, even though it is old fashioned. It was a hard book to read aloud because there are incredibly long sentences and very little punctuation. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tiffiny | 7/14/2010

    " Here again Ryan and I are conflicted - he really liked this book and wants to listen to it again. I didn't really like it. Though it had some good messages, the presentation was old-fashioned and degrading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Twyla | 5/14/2010

    " It isnt so much a story unto itself but a series of short stories to try to get kids to see there is a better way. I made my daughter read "bad table manners cure" outloud. Now I just need to get my hands on a few of these potions .... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 5/9/2010

    " This was a great read aloud for my kids. Ages 3, 6, 8 and 10 were laughing their heads off...although the 3 year old was mostly laughing at her siblings reactions. It was nice to find something they all enjoyed that was new to me too. "
