Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle - Betty MacDonald
Originally published in 1947, this book about Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's nearly magical ability to cure children's bad behavior seems quaintly common-sensical now. I read these books when I was a kid and there are some very funny things in them, and a special bonus: illustrations by Hilary Knight, who also illustrated the Eloise books and is one of my favorite children's book illustrators. A fun window into the past.
