The Adventures of Nanny Piggins by R A Spratt (Paperback)
The woman was not a woman. She was a pig. A common, pink farm pig. The type bacon came from.
"Good evening, I am Nanny Piggins," said Nanny Piggins the pig.When stingy Mr. Green planted a Nanny Wanted sign on his front lawn for his three children, he had no idea his ad would be answered by a pig. Yes, a pig. A fabulously sassy and impeccably dressed pig as a matter of fact! With her insatiable urge to eat chocolate (and feed chocolate to everyone she loves), her high-flying spirit, and her unending sense of fun, Nanny Piggins takes Derrick, Samantha, and Michael on a year of surprises, yummy treats, and adventures they'll never forget. Paired with Dan Santat's charming illustrations, comedian and children's TV writer R.A. Spratt's wildly funny debut novel will have adults and kids alike laughing and rooting for the feisty porcine nanny and her three lovable human charges.

"I never log the zillions of kids books Cam and I read on here, but this one made me laugh so hard, I wanted to make sure to remember it. Hooray for Nanny Piggins!"
"The cover of this book appealed to me so I picked it up and I couldn't believe how amazing this book was. It was a humorous and fanatic adventure book of the life of a nanny pig. The writing is brilliant and the story is told with a dry humor and sarcasm that made this seem more like Lemony Snicket than Mary Poppins. Nanny P is not a good role model. She teaches her young charges things such as the fine art of signature forgery, theft, and property destruction. This is all couched in a fine humor and perhaps a lesson or two about valuing childhood for what it is, and recognizing that sometimes cockroach races can be even more important than long division. The book The Adventures of Nanny Piggins succeeds because of its humor, fine writing and wonderful read aloud flow. Nanny Piggins is hilarious, and the adventures she and the children have are fantabulous. I would recommend reading this to students as a future educator."
