The Adventures of Nanny Piggins

By R. A. Spratt (Hardcover Book, 2010)
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.

  • Praise for The Adventures of Nanny Piggins Australian edition:
    "The Adventures of Nanny Piggins is the most exciting saga about a flying pig nanny ever told. There is a laugh on every page and a lesson in there somewhere. I recommend it highly."

  • "Roll over Roald (Dahl)
    Move over Mary (Poppins)
    A new Children's Classic is here...

    The Adventures of Nanny Piggins is a hold-your-sides hilarious new series for 9+ girls and boys. R.A.Spratt, a comedy writer who has much experience working for children's animation and TV series, has created an irreverent and adventurous chocoholic pig nanny who will capture the imagination of children and adults everywhere." (Girl.com Australia).

  • "Despite having no experience with children (her former job was being shot out of a cannon at the circus), Sarah excels in her new role and most importantly, the children adore her. Trips to the fairground, eating chocolates, neglecting school and having adventures are high on her list of things to do. What Nanny Piggins lacks in intellect, she makes up for in high jinks that include a disastrous trip to China. Frothy as a milkshake and just as sweet. " (The Age Education Resource Centre).
