About the Author

A longtime resident of Washington State, Betty MacDonald (1908-1958) authored four humorous, autobiographical bestsellers and several children's books, including the popular Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle books. Alexandra Boiger grew up in Munich, Germany, where she studied graphic design and began a career in feature animation that allowed her to work for Warner Bros. UK and DreamWorks. Since transitioning to children's book illustration, she has worked on numerous popular titles, including the Tallulah series. She lives with her husband and daughter in northern California.

Gr 2-4-Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle returns in this brand new collection (HarperCollins, 2007) of enchanting stories discovered and compiled by Anne MacDonald Canham, daughter of the late Betty MacDonald who originally created this beloved character. In this never-before-published collection, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle is called upon by neighborhood parents who seek out her advice regarding their children and the various dreadful behaviors they seem to have acquired. From watching too much TV to name calling to refusing to try new things, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle and her extremely capable pets--Wag the dog, Lightfoot the cat, and Lester the pig--set about to alleviate these behaviors with the aid of some mysterious and magical cures. In the final story, the children team up and plan a wonderful birthday celebration for Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle, complete with a few surprises of their own. Narrator Karen White skillfully gives each character a distinctive and appropriate voice, making this a delightful and humorous listening experience that will appeal as much to children today as the original Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle stories did to another generation 50 years ago.-Amy Joslyn, Fairport Public Library, NY Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
