Hello, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle

Hello Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle is about children who tattle or are bullies or show-offs. Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle has a big chest full of jars, bottles, and powders to cure them. For example there is the powder that makes Philip Carmondy completely invisible when he shows off. Or the anti-slowpoke spray for treating Harbin Quadrangle. I can never wait to find out what cure comes next!

I liked the illustrations because I like comparing their clothes then and how they are now. I also like hearing about Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's upside down house. I think other kids should read this book too because it is very funny. If you like hearing about kids your age before now but not like a hundred years ago, this is the book for you! There are only five chapters so it is still a little long but it is still fun to read. It is mostly from the perspective of the parents but it says what the kids think here and there. I loved this book. I couldn't wait to find out what happened next!
