Nanny Piggins by R. A. Spratt

Mr. Green desperately needs to find a new nanny for his children. In the four weeks  since their last nanny left, he has found himself actually having to talk to them, provide  them with meals and pay attention to them himself!! And all this has to stop.

Nanny  Piggins is a most unusual nanny. She is a pig. … Not just any ordinary pig though, Nanny  Piggins has run away from the circus, where she was the circus’ famous flying pig! Mr  Green’s three children Derrick, Samantha and Michael think they are incredibly lucky to have her.

Join Nanny Piggins on a series of wonderful adventures, read them all! There are 3 or 4 books in the series so far. (Is that right Zac?)

My favourite chapter was Nanny Piggins and the ‘sherbet lemon that saved the day’, because it seemed that Nanny Piggins had no idea whatsoever that the man who had got in the car was the one of the town’s most wanted criminals.

This book was recommended to me by my best friend Grace and also by my sister Eibhlin, so I would recommend this to ages 7+ because Eibhlin read it when she was 7.

I rate The Adventures of Nanny Piggins 10/10 because it was very funny; there is a one page disclaimer at the front of Nanny Piggins warning that Nanny Piggins’ diet (which consists of chocolate, cake, lollies, icecream and more) is not one to be followed unless you are a pig.

    It really is a great series Saoirse. The 5th book, Nanny Piggins and the Rival Ringmaster has just been released and we should have it in the library soon.

    Nanny Piggins’ diet sounds very nice to me and I’m sure lots of kids would love to eat nothing but chocolate, cakes, lollies and icecream.
