Its double review time.
Jake and Jemima have a new babysitter; Marge. Marge is a rainbow haired mischief-maker who loves to make a mess, bend the rules and tell magnificent stories. When not regaling Jake and Jemima with her fantastic stories, Marge can be found cooking up chocolate soup or conducting the band in the playground at Jake and Jemima’s school. Marge is definitely the bestest most funnest babysitter ever.
Marge is back in charge in Marge and the pirate Baby, she will have to use all of her skills to tame Zara the Pirate Baby. With Jake, Jemima and now Pirate Baby Zara, Marge has her work cut out for her at home, at the pool and most importantly at Uncle Desmond and Aunt Annie’s wedding. With her rainbow hair and mischievous personality there is plenty of fun when Marge is in charge.
These books were awesome. Written by Isla Fisher and illustrated by Eglantine Ceulemans, each book contains 3 wonderful stories. Isla Fisher’s fantastic story telling is perfectly complimented by Eglantine Ceulemans’ illustrations.
I really enjoyed the quirky unpredictable characters, I was smiling from beginning to end. Setting the book out into three short stories was a great idea. It kept the stories fresh and fast paced and it kept you wanting more.
Anyone one with children should get these books immediately. You wont regret it.
Isla Fisher has struck gold with Marge in Charge and Marge and the Pirate Baby. I cant wait to she what she does next.
