Nanny Piggins and the Wicked Plan by R.A. Spratt

Nanny Piggins and the Wicked plan by R.A. Spratt. Pub. Random House, 2009.

I promised I would read another in this series about Nanny Piggins and the Green children and I have and it was a pleasure. I laughed all the way through and kids will too.

This collection of 13 inter-related short stories takes a shot at everything from unscrupulous lawyers to Brownies and Boy Scouts.Loosely held together by Mr Green the children’s father trying to get rid of Nanny Piggins who is going nowhere. Boris the Russian Bear again features plus a host of others.

Nanny Piggis is as unPC as you can get and the fun just flows.

My favourite story is when an Armadillo challenges Nanny Piggins to prove who is the best flying animal in the world. By “flying” means being shot out of a cannon across a gorge a la Evil Knievel.

R.A,Spratts description of an armadillo is “like a pig going to a fancy dress as a tank”. Her use of language and her descriptions are just brilliant.

I won’t tell you anything else just get out and read it!

Ideal for children at school years 4 to 8. Buy the whole series they will shoot out of your library.
