Virals by Kathy Reichs

Reading Level: Grades 6 and up

Tory Brennan, like her famous aunt Temperance Brennan (who you may know from the TV series Bones), is headstrong, determined, and smart. When Tory finds out that scientists on a nearby island are doing illegal and inhumane experiments on a wolfdog, she and her three best friends Hi, Shelton, and Ben, break in to the lab and rescue the pup.

The poor dog's been infected with parvovirus, a disease common in puppies that can be fatal to dogs, but is harmless to humans. But as Tory and her friends nurse Coop back to health, they begin to notice some changes in themselves. Could Coop's strain of parvovirus have been an experimental version? Could the four kids have caught it themselves?

The Adventures of Nanny Piggins by R.A. Spratt

Reading Level: Grades 3 - 5

The Green children are nanny repelling specialists. They have driven away every person who has responded to their father's "Nanny Wanted" sign. Their father is so desperate that when a well-dressed pig inquires about the sign, he hires her on the spot.

This is not a story of naughty children taught to be good by a firm but fun nanny. After all this nanny is a pig who knows nothing of manners, bedtimes or the importance of homework. As a matter of fact, this chocolate loving nanny has to be talked out of some of her wilder ideas by her delighted charges.

Other stories of unconventional nannies include: Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers and Nurse Matilda: The Collected Tales by Christianna Brand
