Nanny Piggins and the Runaway Lion

by R A Spratt

Random House. Australian, Junior. Paperback rrp $14.95

Nanny Piggins is the world’s most glamorous flying pig and nanny to the Green children – Derrick, Samantha and Michael. As you can immediately see, Nanny Piggins is no ordinary pig and with her adopted brother Boris, a 10 foot dancing bear, she gets up to some very unusual things.

Reading through the book you will find that Nanny Piggins loves chocolate, the Green children, cooking and eating. She loves to wear hot-pink leotards, showcase her trapeze and sleuthing skills and demonstrate how she can break Olympic skiing records. Unfortunately Mr Green is determined to send her beloved charges off to far flung places so he can have some peace and quiet and get rid of Nanny Piggins. And of course she has the runaway lion to contend with.

Every chapter is a complete fantastic adventure. This book can be read backwards if you want. Nanny Piggins won’t mind. So long as you have fun doing it!

Nanny Piggins and the Runaway Lion is the third book in the series. Author RA Spratt would like to write 33 books – so there might be quite a few more. Fingers crossed. The first book The Adventures of Nanny Piggins was reviewed by The Reading Stack in April 2009.
