Marmaduke is missing! Once again, Emma has forgotten to put her ferret back in his cage. And with four brothers and sisters and a poodle who chases Marmaduke around the house, Emma finds herself in the middle of this and other family dilemmas. If only she can prove to her parents that she's responsible, then maybe they'll let her join the traveling soccer team. When Annie, the new nanny, arrives, Emma feels she's found someone who's on her side. Annie's the coolest nanny ever, but will Mom and Daddy let her stay? Or will they fire her, as they have so many of the other nannies?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3-5. Hermes will leave thoughtful young readers mulling issues of trust and responsibility with this tale of a large family beset with domestic minicrises. Beginning with the night that Emma's ferret escapes for the umpteenth time and takes refuge in her parents' bed, Hermes repeatedly puts Emma on the spot. Her pet bites a classmate after she takes it to school without permission; she accidentally burns the passport of the family's newest nanny, Annie O'Reilly; then she saves the lovable nanny from a dangerous fall but tries to hide the incident from her overprotective parents. The tumult in a family with five preteen children, several pets, and two working parents provides a lively setting, and the author lightly but effectively conveys the ideas that adults aren't perfect and that admitting mistakes is often the first step toward solutions that leave everyone pleased. --John Peters Copyright 2006 Booklist"
