The Adventures of Nanny Piggins (YA)
Mr. Green places a sign advertisting the need for a nanny for his three children. He is surprised when a former circus pig shows up and applies for the job. He hires her, until a human nanny can be found. Nanny Piggins teaches the children the important stuff--what junk food to eat, the importance of chocolate and other things. Nanny Piggins is over the top and uncoventional and the Green children love her. Each chapter of this book is a mini-adventure tale of some hijink or another involving Nanny Piggins and the children. This book is a fun read filled with humor. Upper elementary grade children would love it.
