Nanny Piggins series

OK: Let me start at the beginning.

This series is the best I’ve ever read. It’s all about a Nanny who’s a pig. She doesn’t believe in school, vegetables, mathematics or history but she DOES believe in cake, chocolate, more cake, more chocolate and (of course) chocolate cake. She is a talented athlete who has 13 identical sisters and one brother, and she is the world’s greatest flying pig. She also has many other talents including baking, wrestling annoying people, defeating numerous villains (including her former employer, The Ringmaster, and her arch-nemesis Nanny Anne) and saving the world in general.


Rating: 110000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 to the power of 100/10

Verdict: Awesome, fantastic, amazing…

Where to borrow: Gungahlin, Woden, Dickson, Belconnen, Tuggeranong, Erindale and Kippax public libraries.

The Floods Series

Colin Thompson’s series The Floods is a captivating story about a family of wizards and witches. It is amazing!!!! Join Nerlin, Mordonna, Merlinmary, Satanella, Winchflat, Betty, Morbid & Silent and Valla as they go on all sorts of crazy adventures!

My Australian girl

This is a series I was particularly drawn to. They have very good plots, and are very educational as they teach about history, showing a timeline of several young girls living in significant times in Australian history. Any girl will like this, as I did, but they do have cliffhangers and are very short.

Where to borrow: Woden, cannot find anywhere else, know from experience.

Rating: 9/10

Verdict: GREAT PLOT!

Age group: 6-9

  1. I’ve read the Grace books about a convict and some of the Rose books about a girl who likes cricket and bicycle riding
    although I think they’re called ”Our Australian girls” (I think)
