Description

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle is back with a brand-new bundle of wonderfully magical cures for any bad habit from watching too much TV to picky eating to fear of trying new things. With a little help from her pets, Wag the dog, Lightfoot the cat, and Lester the pig and a trunk full of magnificent powders and potions she can solve any problem, big or small. And while Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle is working her magic, the children are working some of their own, planning a boisterous birthday bash for everyone's favorite problem solver

Just in time for the sixtieth anniversary of the original Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle comes a healthy dose of comedy and adventure to delight a whole new generation of readers.
