The world's most fabulous nanny pig is back in this side-splitting sequel to The Adventures of Nanny Piggins!
When Mr. Green announces his diabolical plan-- he has decided to get married-- his children are horrified. Because if he finds a wife, he'll fire their beloved nanny. Breakfast without chocolate? Never! Someone must stop him, and Nanny Piggins is just the pig to do it!
R.A. Spratt's delightfully funny follow-up to her award-winning debut is chock-full of surprising adventures for the feisty Nanny Piggins and the adorable children, from being blasted out of a cannon with an arrogant armadillo to dueling a Gypsy Queen over a pit of fire. Dan Santat is back again with his quirky and wonderfully charming illustrations that capture the fun and high-flying spirit of these hilarious stories.
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...
Feisty, funny Nanny Piggins and her adoring charges will charm readers and listeners stateside, who'll be overjoyed there are five additional volumes already out Down Under."
Kirkus (starred review)
* "Nanny Piggins returns and more hilarity ensues...the action is nonstop and the silliness never ending, though there are words of wise wisdom here as well."
