Reading Level: Grades 3 - 5

The Green children are nanny repelling specialists. They have driven away every person who has responded to their father's "Nanny Wanted" sign. Their father is so desperate that when a well-dressed pig inquires about the sign, he hires her on the spot.

This is not a story of naughty children taught to be good by a firm but fun nanny. After all this nanny is a pig who knows nothing of manners, bedtimes or the importance of homework. As a matter of fact, this chocolate loving nanny has to be talked out of some of her wilder ideas by her delighted charges.

Other stories of unconventional nannies include: Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers and Nurse Matilda: The Collected Tales by Christianna Brand
