Missy Piggle-Wiggle and the Whatever Cure

Missy Piggle-Wiggle and the Whatever Cure

by Ann M. Martin, Annie Parnell Illustrated by Ben Hatke
Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle has gone away unexpectedly and left her niece, Missy Piggle-Wiggle, in charge of her beloved animals: Lester the pig, Wag the dog, and Penelope the parrot, among others.
Families in town soon realize that, like her great-aunt, Missy Piggle-Wiggle has inventive cures for all sorts of childhood (mis)behavior: The Whatever Cure and the Just-a-Minute Cure, for instance. What is a stressed-out parent to do? Why, call Missy Piggle-Wiggle, of course!
Like her aunt, Missy has a gift for “curing” the children of Little Spring Valley of impolite behaviors in this series reboot.
New York Times bestselling author Ann M. Martin brings her signature warmth and comic genius to a new character, and artist Ben Hatke brings it all to life!
