Amazon Best Middle Grade Book of the Month, July 2012: A bit like a porcine Amelia Bedelia, Nanny Piggins’ literal interpretations and take-charge attitude inevitably lead to wacky but well-meaning outcomes. For the Green children, their father’s disinterest in them is matched only by the love and attention they receive from Nanny, and her delight in taking Mr. Green to task on behalf of the rest of the family. It is not surprising, then, to learn that the wicked plan referred to in the title, Nanny Piggins and the Wicked Plan, is Mr. Green’s quest to find a new wife and send Nanny Piggins back to her former career as a famous flying pig. Adventure (Nanny Piggins returns to the cannon to defend her title), heart, and even a little math, accompany many chocolate cakes (Nanny’s remedy for everything) in this welcome second book from R.A. Spratt.--Seira Wilson
* "Nanny Piggins returns and more hilarity ensues...the action is nonstop and the silliness never ending, though there are words of wise wisdom here as well."―Booklist (starred review)

"Spratt's Mary Poppins-cum-Paddington Bear with a sprinkling of Snickettian humor makes for a terrific read aloud... Readers will demand swift release of the two sequels."―Kirkus
