Betty Bard MacDonald (1907–1958), the best-selling author of The Egg and I and the classic Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle children’s books, burst onto the literary scene shortly after the end of World War II. Readers embraced her memoir of her years as a young bride operating a chicken ranch on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, and The Egg and I sold its first million copies in less than a year. The public was drawn to MacDonald’s vivacity, her offbeat humor, and her irreverent take on life. In 1947, the book was made into a movie starring Fred MacMurray and Claudette Colbert, and spawned a series of films featuring MacDonald's Ma and Pa Kettle characters. MacDonald followed up the success of The Egg and I with the creation of Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle, a magical woman who cures children of their bad habits, and with three additional memoirs: The Plague and I (chronicling her time in a tuberculosis sanitarium just outside Seattle), Anybody Can Do Anything (recounting her madcap attempts to find work during the Great Depression), and Onions in the Stew (about her life raising two teenage daughters on Vashon Island). Author Paula Becker was granted full access to Betty MacDonald’s archives, including materials never before seen by any researcher. Looking for Betty MacDonald, a biography of this endearing Northwest storyteller, reveals the story behind the memoirs and the difference between the real Betty MacDonald and her literary persona.

Hello, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle! brings the uproarious stories of Betty MacDonald and her heroine, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle, to the musical stage. Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle lives on the outskirts of town with her parrot, Penelope, in an upside-down house built by her husband, a pirate - a house which is usually overrun with children playing, painting, digging in the yard, playing dress-up, and generally having a wonderful time. Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle loves children, and she especially loves helping children and families who are having such difficulties as fighting and quarreling, interrupting, displaying bad table manners, clumsiness, rudeness and problems with picking up their rooms or takng a bath. Mrs. P. understands kids in a way that no one else can, and her pirate's chest of magical cures and her imaginative and slyly humorous ways to solve problems never fail to save the day. Rousing songs, dances, dream sequences and high comedy make this a family favorite - a show that appeals to parents almost as much as children. Your family will share laughter and music together and will surely recognize themselves in a least one of these hilarious episodes.
