After Nelly advertises her willingness to monster sit, she begins a series of adventures and misadventures. In each of her monster-sitting experiences, she has to learn about, adapt to, and sometimes rescue her young charges. Narrator Kate Sachs commendably gives the monsters distinction, but she never neglects her humans, especially Nelly. Nelly's mother adds to the fun as she gets into the act, driving a monster couple, all decked out, to the movie theater. With the help of Plip, Plot, and Seaview, sons of Drip and Drop, Nelly helps the local police solve a baffling robbery. A subtle example of what is "normal" enriches this unusual story for young listeners. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
