Welcome to Stories Come to Life. I am your host, Kathryn Lopez Luker. During this time of Covid, many people aren’t able to use the library in the same way as in the past. To help bring more stories to more readers, HarperCollins Children Books Company is allowing books that are normally unavailable for copyright reasons to be read out loud and shared with others until December 31, 2021. The stories that fall under that special permission will all be taken down on that date, so listen now, while they’re available! Today’s story is shared with permission of HarperCollins Children’s Books. 

When I was a little girl, we had in our house a very old copy of Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle’s Magic, by Betty MacDonald, that had been my mother’s when she was a little girl. We read that book over and over again until the cover was coming off and the pages were all loose. But the words stayed with us and became part of our family lore. For example, when we are eating dinner together and someone says, “Fleas gasp and mutter,” we all know that that person is asking for the butter. Here is “The Thought-You-Saider’s Cure,” along with the wonderful introductory chapter, “Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle’s Magic.”

Now sit back, relax, and listen to this story come to life.
