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.”

You can check out the latest edition at
The Children’s Book Review Store.
