After repeated applicants had declined to take the job, Mr. Green was desperate to hire a nanny (as cheaply as possible, of course)…desperate enough to hire the smartly dressed pig who now stood on his doorstep. Her only credentials, his three children subsequently learned, were that she had been repeatedly blasted from a cannon during her years with the circus. 
The children soon fell madly in love with Nanny Piggins. She had an insatiable urge to stuff herself and her charges with all things chocolate, and she thought it a barbaric practice to force children to go to school… especially in those awful, unfashionable uniforms. She was confident in the notion that her employer’s money was better spent taking the children to amusement parks and the beach. Her showdown with Headmaster Pimplestock marks only the first of many hilarious escapades distinguishing her career as nanny to the Green children, who couldn’t believe their luck.  (New Hampshire Great Stone Face Award nominee, 2011-2012)
