The Mum-Minder Synopsis

I'm Sadie and I'm nearly nine. Mum's a childminder, but she doesn't have to mind me. I can mind myself, easy-peasy. Lucky for Mum, because now she's got the flu, so I've got to mind her - and help with all the babies!

The Mum-Minder Press Reviews

Funny and warm-hearted . . . through Sadie's uncritical eyes, the babies' antics and adult failings are the stuff of comedy . . . Wittily illustrated * Daily Mail * A fine eye for the details of chaos * Independent on Sunday * High energy, zappy storytelling * Junior Bookshelf * The humorous account of a vivacious girl coping cheerfully and resourcefully with a problem life . . . Very entertaining reading . . . Should appeal to most primary school readers, particularly girls, and is well served by its attractive cover * School Librarian *
