We got to meet one of our favourite Australian children's books authors, R.A.Spratt, yesterday at a local children's bookshop that we love to visit. We've all enjoyed the Nanny Piggins series. (You can find my review of the first book here if you're interested). I love how absurd and witty and refreshingly different they are.
Our (almost) 6 year old Elsie (pictured with R.A. Spratt) is really enjoying them now. They work well as read-aloud books for kids aged 5 and up and read-alone books for slightly older kids (depending on how confidently they read).
