Summary
Emma loves the family's Irish nanny. Annie's fun. She likes pets. She keeps secrets. She wears wonderful clothes. And she likes to play. Emma's sisters and brothers are also crazy about her. So when Annie announces that she's returning to Ireland for three weeks to see her sisters, the kids panic. What if Annie doesn't come back? What if their parents hire a new nanny, someone who doesn't like ferrets, or even worse, kids? Annie introduces them to a substitute nanny named Mrs. Potts. But the kids don't take to her. She's just not Annie. What a dilemma! Then Emma has a brainstorm...and the fun really begins!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The sequel to Emma Dilemma and the New Nanny (2006) opens with a proposed vacation for the O'Fallon family's beloved nanny. The prospect of three weeks without Annie sends the five children, particularly third-grader Emma, into a tizzy. She thinks that her parents will prefer the substitute and replace Annie, which is not too far-fetched given their hiring-and-firing track record. Bringing to mind an older Junie B. Jones, Hermes' headstrong but sympathetic heroine learns from her mistakes, which are not insignificant: Emma takes a book from her rival without asking and tells a whopper in hopes of preventing Annie's holiday. Guided by supportive adults and her own developing morality, Emma recognizes her missteps and makes amends. Throughout, the adults are appealing--flawed yet believable--and many readers will see their own chaotic but loving families in the large, busy O'Fallon household, complete with pet ferret and dog.--Nolan, Abby Copyright 2007 Booklist"
