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!

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!
