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.
