A new Children's Classic is here!
'I charge ten cents an hour,' Nanny Piggins declared boldy.
'You're hired!' exclaimed Mr Green without even thinking. He knew a bargain when he heard one. 'I'll be frank, Nanny Piggins, I would prefer not to have a pig take care of my children. But I am prepared to offer you the job until a suitable human nanny presents herself.'
'Very well,' said Nanny Piggins, 'I think you will find human nannies are terribly orated. They are, in my experience, very greedy and not terribly clean. But I shall agree to your terms. Because it is wet outside and I do not have an umbrella.'
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 have some wonderful adventures together. I won't spoil them for you by listening 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.
