Children Ages 8+ • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

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. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
