A nanny with trotters! Nanny Piggins, the world's most glamorous flying pig, runs away from the circus and goes to live with the Greens as their nanny. The Green children, Derrick, Samantha and Michael, fall in love with her instantly. Who could not fall in love with a Nanny whose only job qualifications are her astonishing ability to be fired out of a cannon and her amazing ability to make chocolate cake, sometimes both at the same time? They then have some wonderful adventures together. I won't spoil them for you by listing them all but they do include catching a serial doorknob thief, hiding a 10-foot dancing bear in the basement and being lost at sea en route to China. If you don't believe us, listen to the experts: 'No one knows more about firing cannons than Nanny Piggins. We could have used a pig like her in the last war.' MAJOR GENERAL WINTERBOTTOM, ROYAL ARTILLERY REGIMENT 'Reading this book made me give up eating bacon sandwiches.' JANET MURRAY, PIG FARMER 'I used to want to be a brain surgeon but Nanny Piggins taught me there are much more important jobs in life.' HANS THE BAKER 'Nanny Piggins is the love of my life. If I could read this book without sobbing over every page, I would.' SCHOOL DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENT FINKLESTICK
