  About The Book

With a runaway lion loose in the neighborhood, Derrick, Samantha, and Michael feel scared. Nanny Piggins feels like a slice of cake. And Boris feels like that lion looks strangely familiar...

In this third action-packed book of adventures, Nanny Piggins tames a lion and a lion tamer. She also revolutionizes the sport of ski jumping, introduces hot-pink leotards to the local Neighborhood Watch, and demonstrates trapeze skills on a moving bus. All while thwarting Mr. Green's attempt to send her favorite children to Nicaragua.

This third much-anticipated book in the series is sure to be a treat for Nanny Piggins' avid fans, young and old!



Praise for Nanny Piggins and the Wicked Plan:
* "If Amelia Bedelia and Mary Poppins raised a piglet, Nanny Piggins ... could surely beat that pig in a cake-eating contest... Australia's favorite porcine childcare worker returns in a new collection of adventures sure to entertain and possibly inspire envy in readers who'll wish she were their nanny."
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

* "The action is nonstop and the silliness never ending...As much fun for reading aloud as reading alone." Booklist (starred review)
