From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Magic (1949) is the second book in Betty MacDonald's series about the expert child-curative Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle. The series begins with Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle and continues with Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Farm 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 Magic (illustrated by Hilary Knight) supplants the reverse psychology, aversion therapy, and other behaviour modification tricks of the first book with magic potions and powders. The list of problems here:

  • "The Thought-You-Saiders Cure"
  • "The Tattletale Cure"
  • "The Bad-Table-Manners Cure"
  • "The Interrupters"
  • "The Heedless Breaker"
  • "The Never-Want-to-Go-to-Schooler"
  • "The Whaddle-I-Doers"
