Meet Nanny Piggins. Yes, she is a pig, as well as a nanny…. but what a nanny!

Once a circus acrobat, Nanny Piggins is now the amazing caregiver of the three Green children: Derrick, Samantha and Michael. Unmatched among nannies in bravery, agility and cleverness, she also boasts an unbeatable flying leg lock and a talent for making chocolate cake. It’s safe to say that there’s nothing “ordinary” about Nanny Piggins and her adventures!

Most importantly, the Green children adore her.

In this hilarious book, Nanny’s madcap escapades (shared with the Green children) include thwarting Mr. Green’s plans to send the children to a faraway boarding school, rescuing a kidnapped author, capturing a very clever burglar, revising Shakespeare’s famous tragedy Hamlet, revolutionizing the sport of ski jumping in the Italian Alps and as the title of the book suggests, encountering a runaway circus lion.

Even a broken ankle doesn’t deter this intrepid pig, as she uses her recuperation time to foil a gang of international thieves!

When young readers finish this book, they may wish for a Nanny Piggins of their own. As this isn’t possible, of course, the best alternative is to read about more of her escapades and exploits, in Nanny Piggins and the Wicked Plan.
