Nanny Piggins and The Wicked Plan is the second hilarious collection of stories about the flying pig that has captured the hearts of children and adults across Australia. The Adventures of Nanny Piggins, R.A Spratt's introduction to the nanny with trotters, was a breakout success for the debut author with over 10,000 copies sold in Australia and rights sold to the United States.
In this second book, Mr Green announces his diabolical plan- he has decided to get married! His children, Derrick, Samantha and Michael are horrified, especially when they discover his real motive- he wants to get married so he can sack their beloved nanny, Nanny Piggins. Obviously their father has to be stopped, and Nanny Piggins is just the pig to do it.
And so, in the process of ruining Mr Green's matrimonial prospects, Nanny Piggins and the children have many exciting adventure- including being blasted across Dead Man's Gorge with an armadillo breaking into a maximum-security prison in search of Chinese food and fighting a Gypsy Queen over a pit of fire.
Rachel Spratt is an award-winning comedy writer with over ten years' experience in the television industry. She has written comedy, pre-school drama and children's animation.
Rachel lives in Sydney, loves cappuccino-flavoured chocolate hates Telstra. The third book, Nanny Piggins and the Runaway Lion, will be published in early 2010.
