Missy Piggle Wiggle and the Whatever Cure Suffering from a case of Waddle-I-Do?  Try a dose of Missy Piggle-Wiggle and the Whatever Cure by Ann M. Martin with Annie Parnell.

Once upon a time, there was a woman named  Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle and she was loved by everyone.  Children loved her because she was lots of fun.  Parents loved her because she provided parents with cures for their children’s bad habits.  The books were based on bedtime stories made up by Betty MacDonald for her daughters, nieces, and nephews.

Now, MacDonald’s great-granddaughter Annie Parnell has teamed up with Ann M. Martin – who created the Babysitter’s Club books – to reboot the series for a new generation of readers.  Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle has gone away unexpectedly and left her niece, Missy Piggle-Wiggle, in charge of her upside down house and the beloved animals who live there.  Families in town soon realize that like her great-aunt, Missy Piggle-Wiggle has inventive cures for all sorts of childhood misbehavior:  The Whatever Cure and the Just-a-Minute Cure, for instance.  So, suffer no more, Missy Piggle-Wiggle is a novel cure for what ails you!
