First edition of first book in series

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle is a series of children's books by Betty MacDonald and a television series created by actress Shelley Duvall, as well as the name of the main character. The first book is Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle, published in 1947; three sequels completed by MacDonald are Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Magic, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Farm, and Hello, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle (1949 to 1957). Happy Birthday, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle (2007) was completed by her daughter Anne MacDonald Canham based on 'notes for other stories among her mother's possessions'.[1]

The series has been extended by Ann M. Martin and Annie Parnell, featuring the character's great-niece, beginning with Missy Piggle-Wiggle and the Whatever Cure in September 2016. The third Missy Piggle-Wiggle book was released in September 2018.[2]

Synopsis[edit]

The Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle series is about a small woman who lives in an upside-down house in a lively neighborhood inhabited mainly by children who have bad habits.

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle has a chest full of magical cures left to her by her deceased husband, Mr. Piggle-Wiggle, who was a pirate. In the first two books of the series, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle (1947) and Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Magic (1949), Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle provides parents with cures for their children's bad habits. Cures range from the mundane (the 'Won't-Pick-Up-Toys Cure', allowing a small boy to continue leaving his toys scattered about his room until the room becomes so cluttered that he is unable to escape) to the fantastic (the 'Interrupting Cure', a special powder that is blown on the interrupter, which causes the person to become temporarily mute every time he/she tries to interrupt someone).

In the series' third book, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Farm (1954), Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle sells her house in town and purchases a farm, where with the assistance of a large assortment of animals she continues to help children overcome their bad habits. In this collection, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle uses no magic for her cures; the farm itself does the most good. In the fourth book, Hello, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle (1957) she has apparently returned to her original neighborhood and to her magical cures. No mention of the farm is made for the rest of the series.

The Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle stories were based on bedtime stories MacDonald made up for her daughters, nephews, and nieces (and later grandchildren and grandnephews/-nieces). Some of the 151 children have the same names as members of the original audience (for example, there is a pair of brothers called Darsie and Bard). This explains some of the inconsistencies, such as Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle being either a good witch/fairy or just someone who understands child psychology better than most professors of the subject.

The final book in the series, Happy Birthday, Mrs. Piggle Wiggle (2007), was published sixty years after the original, and is largely written by MacDonald's daughter, Anne MacDonald Canham (the two share a writing credit for this book). The first story in the book is an unpublished MacDonald story, while Anne explains in the book that the remaining stories are based on 'notes for other stories among her mother's possessions.'

The first edition of Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle was illustrated by Richard Bennett. Subsequent editions of Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Magic, and Hello, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle are illustrated by Hilary Knight. Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Farm is illustrated by Maurice Sendak. Happy Birthday, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle is illustrated by Alexandra Boiger.

In September 2016, a follow-up to series was released, titled Missy Piggle-Wiggle and the Whatever Cure. The title was written by Ann M. Martin (known for The Baby-Sitters Club) and Annie Parnell (MacDonald's great-granddaughter), with illustrations by Ben Hatke. In this version of the series, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's husband is alive, but has gone missing, and Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle has set out in search of him, leaving her great-niece, Missy Piggle-Wiggle, in charge of the upside-down house. Missy Piggle-Wiggle soon begins helping the children in the neighborhood with her own take on Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's special magic and cures. The series is set in the modern era, though the nature of the problems and cures remains similar to those in the original novels. Following the publication of The Whatever Cure, Martin and Parnell began work on a second title in the series.[3] The second title, Missy Piggle-Wiggle and the Won't-Walk-the-Dog Cure, was released on September 5, 2017.[4] A third title, Missy Piggle-Wiggle and the Sticky-Fingers Cure, was released on September 4, 2018.[5]
