Description

A flying pig's job is never done...

With a runaway lion loose in the neighborhood, Derrick, Samantha, and Michael feel scared. Nanny Piggins feels like a slice of cake. And Boris feels like that lion looks strangely familiar...

But if there was ever a pig who could tame both lion and lion tamer, it's Nanny Piggins! She also revolutionizes the sport of ski jumping, introduces hot-pink leotards to the local Neighborhood Watch, and demonstrates trapeze skills on a moving bus -- all while thwarting Mr. Green's attempt to send the children to Nicaragua.

R. A. Spratt's third book in the delightfully madcap Nanny Piggins series is filled with more high-flying adventures, more outrageous characters, and more chocolate cake than ever before!
