    I really love R. A. Spratt's books. My favorite part of "Nanny Piggins and the Wicked Plan" is the part where Nanny Piggins digs a hole in Mr.Green's yard, and finally hits a cement wall. Then she ends up in a jail cell, thinks it's China, and invites the criminals over. That part is really funny.
