This critically acclaimed, award-winning middle grade debut follows the story of the three Green children who 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. Combined with award-winning artist Dan Santat's charming black-and-white illustrations, The Adventures of Nanny Piggins is set to become the next children's classic!
Nanny Piggins is a circus pig turned nanny, and the Green children are her very lucky charges. Mr. Green is famously penny-pinching and a deeply neglectful father, so when Nanny enters the lives of Derrick, Samantha, and Michael, their lives transform. Suddenly the children experience wild adventures, like taking a boat to China to get Chinese food, dessert for dinner, and all kinds of nonsense.
