I just received The Adventures of Nanny Piggins by R.A. Spratt:

The Adventures of Nanny Piggins

Here's the blurb:
When Mr. Green plants a NANNYWANTED sign on his front lawn, he has no idea the ad will be answered by a pig. Yes, a pig.  A fabulously sassy and impeccably dressed pig, as a matter of a fact!  With her insatiable urge to eat chocolate (and feed chocolate to everyone she loves), her high-flying spirit, and her unending sense of fun, Nanny Piggins takes the achildren on a year of surprises, adventures, and sugar highs that they'll never forget.

Here's my Friday 56:
The director of the gallery ignored her and warbled on.  Nanny Piggins passed toffees out to each of the children to fortify them through the inevitable speechifying.
