    What drew me to this book was the cover (I know, you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover). I can explain, the cover had two girls on the it, who looked like best friends (I'm a sucker for best friend-related books). I also recognized Sophie Blackall's wonderful, awesome illustrations. Anyway, ba...

    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.
