Happy Birthday, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle
Oh! A new Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle book is out, Happy Birthday Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle from Betty MacDonald, who died in 1958, and her daughter Anne MacDonald Canham, who apparently found an unpublished Mrs. PW story and notes among her mother's things. This release is particularly exciting for those of us who grew up hearing and reading Mrs. PW stories of modifying children’s behavior in highly imaginative, sometimes very creepy ways, such as The Radish Cure in Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle. The new book is the first new Mrs. PW book in 50 years.
