Children Ages 8+ • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Rees's lovely story speaks to kids on many subjects--losing a mother, living with an AU PAIR, and longing for a mother figure. When Esmie and her brother decide to advertise in the newspaper's lonely hearts column for their dad, unknown to him, the results are hilarious. Narrator Kelly Hunter is splendid as the very French nanny, Juliette; the police inspector dad; and the charming Lizzie, who answers the ad and enters the misunderstanding and fun. A wonderful bittersweet story for those of all ages. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
