Happy-happy joy-joy! This is what was hiding in a box of books at my Mother In-Law’s house:

by Betty MacDonald (Author), Hilary Knight (Illustrator)

Edition: Stated Second Impression, Second Printing

Binding: Hardcover

Publisher: J.B. Lippincott company

Date published: 1957

I love Virginia Kirkus‘ review of Hello, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle, located at the back of the book, on the dust cover:

“… the conversation sparkles with the kind of adult joking children love to mimic and with humorous comments on the more trying times of childhood. Hilary Knight’s drawings add a benevolent malevolence.”

So, tell me what’s hiding on your mother in-law’s book shelf? What good finds have you found?
