Aunt Amelia

Written by Rebecca Cobb

Aunt Amelia Synopsis

A brilliantly fun story about a rather unusual babysitter from Rebecca Cobb, the award-winning illustrator of The Paper Dolls and The Everywhere Bear. 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 and Dad have left a list of boring instructions. But Aunt Amelia turns out to be rather different from expected . . . and a lot more fun! Gorgeous illustrations accompany the sweet and funny text in Aunt Amelia - every child (and adult) will wish for an aunt like Amelia! Also available from Rebecca Cobb: Lunchtime, The Something and Hello Friend!
