Nanny Piggins’ Guide to Conquering Christmas will feature the all-time best read aloud Nanny Piggins chapter - Nanny Piggins Saves Christmas (from book 4) as well as four new holiday themed chapters.

These new stories will feature:-
·A Christmas carolling duel with Nanny Anne (for which Nanny Piggins re-writes the lyrics of well-known Christmas songs to better reflect the true meaning of Christmas)
·An old fashioned white Christmas, but not made not with snowflakes, made with white-chocolate flakes
·A death defying, cannon-powered, sledge race to get to the boxing day sales on time (Nanny Piggins is most disappointed to discover that there is no actual boxing on boxing day, but she keeps her boxing gloves handy just in case)
·A spectacular New Year’s Eve fireworks display unexpectedly starring a flaming flying pig.
·And Nanny Piggins’ personal re-telling of the first Christmas from a pig’s perspective in the barn that night.

Then to mix it up and make this different to the regular Nanny Piggins books, in between the chapters there will be:-
·Nanny Piggins special Christmas recipes
·Boris’ letters to Santa (he conducts extensive correspondence with Santa throughout the year)
·Nanny Piggins’ annual Christmas message to her fans
·Christmas fashion dos and don’ts.
·Instructions on how to play Nanny Piggins’ favourite Christmas games
·Nanny Piggins Christmas tips, such as…

“Traditionally children put out a plate of biscuits for Santa and a carrot for his reindeer. This is ridiculous. It should be the other way around. Santa is the one with the terrible weight problem, a carrot or two would do him good. Whereas the reindeer have been dragging him around the world all night, they desperately need a chocolate mudcake, each.”
