It’s almost a relief to read a book like Nanny Piggins. In these days of books so chock full of morals and didacticism, it feels good to encounter a book where the main character is unapologetically going against the conventional grown-up wisdom in a way kids would love. And yes, she’s going to be loathed by a certain segment of the adult population. Which is fine. She wasn’t written for adults. She was written for kids and in the best tradition of unapologetic authors like Roald Dahl the books are funny, fun, and wholly original. A great addition to any library or personal collection. Just don’t make the mistake of judging it by its cover.

Nanny Piggins is the best pig nanny ever! Follow her and the kids as they go on exciting adventures like spending their money for uniforms at the theme park. With awesome illustrations from Dan Santat, this book is hilarious.

Mr. Green is cheap. Pretty much as cheap as you can get, actually. Since the death/disappearance of his beloved wife (beloved to others, not particularly to him) his three children have been running rather wild. Now he needs a nanny for them, and so the job goes to the cheapest nanny he can find. Enter Nanny Piggins. She’s a former circus performer (a flying pig) with absolutely zero experience raising kids. That doesn’t stop her for one minute, though. Before the kids know it they’re harboring escapee Russian bears, falling in with Korean shipping vessels, confronting thieves, and baking more pies than it might seem conceivable to attempt eating.
