Award-winning Rebecca Cobb will make children laugh in this funny and charming picture book as, despite expectations, two children enjoy being looked after by Aunt Amelia. Mum and Dad leave Aunt Amelia a list of instructions about what should happen when they are away and Aunt Amelia starts on it straight away. But Aunt Amelia’s ideas of being neat and clean, of only having one ice cream, of not getting too excited and of not staying up too late are not exactly the same as Mum and Dad’s. It’s no surprise that they are very keen that Aunt Amelia should come back and look after them another day soon!
"We were in a bad mood. Aunt Amelia was coming to look after us." A charmingly funny, warm and beautiful new story from the hugely talented creator of Lunchtime.
When Mum and Dad go away for the night, Aunt Amelia comes to look after one very cross little girl and boy. They do NOT want to be looked after and, even worse, Mum has left a list of boring instructions. But Aunt Amelia turns out to be rather different from expected ...and a LOT more fun!
