Marge in Charge

(4) 4-6 Illustrated by Eglantine Ceulemans. When Jemima and little brother Jake meet diminutive babysitter Marge (size jokes abound), they are astonished to learn that she has rainbow-colored hair under her hat and creates (consequence-free) chaos wherever she goes. Written and illustrated with enthusiasm and energy, this fantasy about a wacky, messier Mary Poppins–type strains a bit too hard to convince us that breaking the rules is tons of fun.
