From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Farm (1954) is the third book in Betty MacDonald's comic series about the expert child-curative Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle. The series begins with Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle and continues with Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Magic and Hello, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle. None of the books can be considered novels, but episodic problems with children and their exasperated parents in Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's neighbourhood, and the always winning solution provided by Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle.

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Farm (illustrated by Maurice Sendak) has Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle move from her "upside-down house" to a farm, bought with her husband's pirate treasure found at the end of the last book. Unlike that book, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle uses no magic for her cures; the farm itself does the most good: fresh air, animals, and responsibility are what children seem to really need. The list of problems here:

  • "The Not Truthful Cure"
  • "The Pet Forgetter Cure"
  • "The Destructiveness Cure"
  • "The Fraidy-cat Cure"
  • "The Can't Find It Cure"
