Fun and engaging.

This is the book that inspired the movie "Nanny McPhee", It is read very well by the narrator and is a fun story that will keep the kids well entertained for a few hrs. in the car. The grown ups will also enjoy it

Fantastic!

I love the fact that a classic story such as this one has been given a new 'airing' because of a movie release. I had never heard of the story or the author before I knew about the movie but since researching and finding the Nurse Matilda stories and introducing them to my children (7 and 5 years), we have not looked back and have been enjoying listening to this wonderful piece of children's literature ever since.

It is a classic that should be up there with Little Women and Anne of Green Gables. A must read (or listen) for children from at least the age of 7. We have it playing in the car and I have repeated requests to play it again - my kids love it!
