9780141316918: Little Darlings

Primrose, Cassian and Daisy Darling are very bad children. Papa Darling and Mrs Darling (the children's mum scarpered long ago) both know that child-rearing is a task best performed by experts, not parents. Unfortunately, the Darling family nannies never last long, for quite obvious reasons. Enter Nanny Petronella Fryer - Nanny Pete - in a Jag XJS. Nanny Pete is different. There's the stubble for a start. And she lets them eat anything they want - no more burnt custard or lumpy porridge. They're all about to embark on what can only be called a comic caper, which leads the little Darlings far from home on a cruiseship full of burglars - and ultimately to their own missing mum.

About the Author:

Sam Llewellyn worked as an editor and fine art dealer until he decided that life was too short. Since then, he has been a journalist, yachtsman and novelist and has written many successful thrillers for adults. He lives with his wife, children's author Karen Wallace, in Herefordshire. He is currently writing a second book about the horrible LITTLE DARLINGS.

From AudioFile:

When they're naughty, they're very, very naughty--but when they're bad, they're horrid. The three Darling children spend most of their time trying to get rid of their nannies--and succeeding--until they come across Nanny Pete from the AAA Aardvark Childminding and Security Agency. Simon Shepherd narrates Llewellyn's clever, fast-paced story. As Primrose, Cassian, and Daisy Darling electrocute, custardize, concuss, and otherwise make life miserable for their nannies, Shepherd slips easily into a wide assortment of voices and personalities. Challenging vocabulary describing comic book situations makes this satirical look at the lifestyle of the disgustingly wealthy--adults and children--especially suitable to the youngster with an offbeat sense of humor. Shepherd's handling of Llewellyn's material is appropriately twisted, definitely enthusiastic, and completely engaging.
