Image result for mrs. piggle-wiggle by betty macdonaldMrs. Piggle-Wiggle by Betty MacDonald

After reading so much intense fantasy, I wanted to read something light and very different. And then for some reason I started thinking about this book.

This book is one of many that my mom used to read to my brother and me when we were little. I’m not sure when I last read it.

Basically this book is a collection of stories about ‘cures’ that Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle comes up with such as “Won’t-Pick-up toys cure” and Fighter-Quarreller cure”. Continue reading “(47) Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle // Bookish Blurb”

(20) The Tin Woodman of Oz // Bookish Blurb

maxresdefaultThe Tin Woodman of Oz by L Frank Baum

This is actually the 12th book in the original Oz series. Most people don’t seem to be aware that it is a series at all but it is. I’m slowly working my way through all the books (I read the first 11 last year) which shouldn’t be very hard since they are all quite short and easy to read.

This book concerns the Tin Woodman and is essentially a quest to find the girl he loved before he was made into tin. Along the way we meet many new characters and they go on funny little adventures. As in most of the oz books, the majority of the book is them wandering around meeting odd people/creatures and getting in and out of danger.
