You should never cross a flying pig...When Mr. Green decides to get married, his children are horrified. If he carries out his diabolical plan, he'll fire their beloved nanny. Breakfast without chocolate? Never! Their father must be stopped, and Nanny Piggins, a former circus pig and a champion pit baker, is just the pig to do it!R.A. Spratt's delightful follow-up to her award-winning debut is chock-full of thrilling adventures for the feisty Nanny Piggins, her ballet-dancing bear brother, and the Green children. Dan Santat is back with illustrations that capture the fun and high-flying spirit of these hilarious stories.
Amazon Best Middle Grade Book of the Month, July 2012: A bit like a porcine Amelia Bedelia, Nanny Piggins literal interpretations and take-charge attitude inevitably lead to wacky but well-meaning outcomes. For the Green children, their fathers disinterest in them is matched only by the love and attention they receive from Nanny, and her delight in taking Mr. Green to task on behalf of the rest of the family. It is not surprising, then, to learn that the wicked plan referred to in the title, Nanny Piggins and the Wicked Plan, is Mr. Greens quest to find a new wife and send Nanny Piggins back to her former career as a famous flying pig. Adventure (Nanny Piggins returns to the cannon to defend her title), heart, and even a little math, accompany many chocolate cakes (Nannys remedy for everything) in this welcome second book from R.A. Spratt.--Seira Wilson
