For the Green family, it’s going to be a summer of hard work, blackmail … and flying pigs! The Green family is living quite happily on Deep Valley Farm until war breaks out. Father goes off to fight who knows where, the Greens’ spoiled cousins come from the city to stay, and someone threatens to take the farm from them. Just when it seems things can’t get any worse, the piglets escape and the children get completely out of control. Only one person can be counted on in a situation like this: enter Nanny McPhee. But beware … Nanny McPhee is nothing like other nannies—and it’s not just the warts! With wit and warmth, Emma Thompson, writer and star of Nanny McPhee Returns, recounts one family’s tumultuous summer in an audiobook that alternates between the story and a behind-the-scenes film diary, bringing a delightful and unique perspective to this funny and magical adventure for all ages.

Listener Opinions

    " Emma Thompson was a fantastic narrator--the kids and I loved listening to this story together, though my daughter (age 10) struggled more with the "diary" parts than I, who appreciated learning about the craft of movie making. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ksafford | 3/21/2013

    " Saw the first one as a movie so thought I would try reading this one. We shall see! Well, it was okay but probably better as a movie. The story line was cute. "

    " Really Nice how a witch becomes beautiful when a child does something good ! "

    " An OK quick read since nearly everyone was sick. It helped pass the time. Not my most fav book. BUt cute. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jodi | 3/2/2012

    " I chose this audio book primarily for the fact that it was narrated by Emma Thompson, and I like Emma Thompson. I don't know if my perception of the story would have been different if I read it or had seen a McPhee movie first, but I didn't, so I did like this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendie | 1/21/2012

    " Very whimsical. I really enjoyed this book (except for the commentary about behind the scenes stuff in the movie). It reminded me a lot of a Roald Dahl book with pictures interspersed between chapters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristine | 12/30/2011

    " Fun book. I liked the juxtaposition of Emma Thompson's filming journal with the story. I am not sure young children would like it. I thought the explanation of the filming industry in layman's terms was interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 saga | 8/7/2011

    " this book is very descriptive and there is not a page in this book that makes you want to stop reading. there is a lot of action like when they go to london in a flying motorcycle to find out the truth about their fathers death. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monica | 6/3/2011

    " I can listen to Emma Thompson all day long! She's witty and funny, and does great voices. "
