The Adventures Of Nanny Piggins 1




A nanny with trotters!

A nanny with trotters!

Nanny Piggins, the world's most glamorous flying pig, runs away from the circus and goes to live with the Greens as their nanny. The Green children, Derrick, Samantha and Michael, fall in love with her instantly. Who could not fall in love with a Nanny whose only job qualifications are her astonishing ability to be fired out of a cannon and her amazing ability to make chocolate cake, sometimes both at the same time? They then have some wonderful adventures together. I won't spoil them for you by listing them all but they do include catching a serial doorknob thief, hiding a 10-foot dancing bear in the basement and being lost at sea en route to China.

Praise for The Adventures Of Nanny Piggins 1

“Sarah Piggins is irrepressible, effortlessly eclipsing all her famous fictional peers.”

The Australian

“This splendidly subversive take on the special relationship between paid carers and their charges, loaded with wit. Read it with a child, or to a child, but don't let them carry it off into a corner for their exclusive enjoyment.”

The Australian
