Marge in Charge and the Missing Orangutan

Written by Isla Fisher, Illustrated by Eglantine Ceulemans

Marge is the best babysitter ever. She is no bigger then the children and when she takes off her hat she has rainbow color hair. Mom always leaves a list of rules for Marge, but Marge has a unique way of following those rules. For instance, “Lights out at 8:00 p.m.” – to Marge that means turn off the light, and the rest of the night they use flashlights.

Kids will love reading about the adventures of Marge, Jakey, and Jemima. My favorite adventure was when they went to the zoo. At the zoo there was an exhibit of a tarantula. Marge was afraid of the spider, so she screamed and then climbed onto Jemima’s back. People thought she was crazy.
