My 9 year old loved Marge in Charge! I think she secretly loves the idea of a cheeky babysitter letting her run wild and throwing the rule book out of the window, ha! She kept reading excerpts of it to me and I must say it did sound very funny smile

We liked the fact it was three short stories, and the style is perfect for reading aloud at bedtime. Highly amusing, very imaginative and well written. We loved it, and are definitely looking forward to the next set of Marge in Charge stories!
