The Adventures of Nanny Piggins

By R. A. Spratt and Dan Santat
The Adventures of Nanny Piggins by R. A. Spratt and Dan Santat digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Three children and their hilariously subversive nanny pig embark on zany adventures in this award-winning middle grade debut illustrated by Caldecott winnter Dan Santat.

The three Green children are cared for by a nanny 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.

It's no surprise that Booklist proclaimed, "Mary Poppins, move over--or get shoved out of the way." Nanny Piggins is a refreshing and dynamic addition to favorite classic nannies: Amelia Bedelia, Mrs. Piggle Wiggle, and, of course, Mary Poppins.

“Recently, this series was republished with illustrations by Dan Santat, one of my favorite artists. This book is really silly along the same lines as Roald Dahl. I didn't love it, but I think it will go over well with this age group! Found in L4M YT Volume 83.”
“Took me awhile to get into. The chapters (like short stories) are longer than normal and don't end on cliffhangers, so it's easy enough to drop the book for awhile and then pick it back up. There were times when I laughed out loud. My 7yo son said this was his favorite book I've read aloud to him. That's high praise!”
