Listener Opinions

    " Great fun. Reading the collected stories all at once rather then spaced apart becomes a bit redundant as the stories end very similarly with repeated phrases through each story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janisu-chan | 2/9/2014

    " Cute stories, but the last chapters of each book (a set of three in the book)are identical--a summing up of all the horrible things they've done in that book. I do like the author's writing style--it's like telling a bedtime story like she said she did as a child. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Pease | 2/7/2014

    " 2.75 stars actually. It took much longer to read this book than it usually takes me to read something of this length. I had such a hard time really getting interested in the stories. I kind of liked it, but I can't say that I actually enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Loriann Fish | 1/30/2014

    " 6/7-Enjoying this so far. I have been curious about this series. It reminds me a little of "Mary Poppins" books. I can see how this would be a lot of fun to read out loud with your kids. The chapters are short enough that you could read one or two a night. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Keith | 1/20/2014

    " It was tough. Too many baby words. Words that were not words and my 7 year old had to read them and explain it to me! Overall... she liked it so I guess it was a good book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 1/19/2014

    " MANNY!!!!! You threw this book in the mud, when you stole it from DD last year during book contest and I still have yet to receive an apology! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lirio | 1/5/2014

    " cool.. It was fun! I suggest you read this if you're searching for fun. haha:) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 K. | 12/26/2013

    " These books were SO much fun. Not quite like the movie "Nanny McPhee" (although that was fun too). The kids had a ball counting all the children in the family. I think by book 3 there were 38 or something. Very very fun to read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grumpy72 | 12/1/2013

    " Enjoyable, but I got bored half way through the 2nd story. It just seemed to keep repeating the sequence of events... and I was looking for more variety at this point. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisalou | 11/10/2013

    " Three books were a little too much. But we enjoyed them and the children's wicked, wicked ways. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 11/2/2013

    " beautiful. I can't believe I missed this classic as a kid. The girls and I laughed. You have to be in the right mood for this, but it's easy to get there if you go into it with an open mind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 10/24/2013

    " Emma and I are reading this together. The tales of the children's naughtiness are just hilarious and we are having so much fun with it already. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 9/25/2013

    " The movie, Nanny McPhee, is based on this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vk800 | 3/31/2013

    " I thought it was good, but repetative "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 3/19/2013

    " This review is from MH. She liked it. She asked if Nanny McPhee was based on this book. I had no idea and looked it up. She is. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alexis | 6/20/2012

    " EEEWWW! This book was gross and I did not like it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vincent | 6/17/2012

    " This book surprised me! It was quite charming! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 6/14/2012

    " This was a fun book to read. I learned that the nanny's name is Nurse Matilda not Nanny McPhee. I enjoyed the time spent with Olivia. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 12/28/2011

    " I love love love children's books, but these stories got too repetitive at times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chloe | 8/24/2011

    " I'm seventeen and i just finished reading this book. To think that i missed all the things that i could've done during my childhood... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 NaDell | 4/1/2011

    " The movie sticks to the book pretty well and it's a fun read. It would be great for all kids, especially beginning readers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 2/20/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meg | 1/21/2011

    " Amusing at first, and then got really long and tedious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beka | 10/29/2010

    " Surprisingly enough, I like the movie better. The book is very cute, but I like the twist that Emma Thompson put on the character and that in the movie the kids weren't quite as naughty all the way through. Plus the Evangeline in the movie is much nicer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grumpy72 | 5/6/2010

    " The first Nurse Matilda story would earn 5 stars from me. . .a very funny short story about bad children and how a stern caretaker teaches them to be good by making them continue being bad. Unfortunately, every time the theme was repeated, it got a little less engaging. "

About the Author
Author Christianna Brand

Christianna Brand (1907–1988) was one of the most popular authors of the Golden Age of British mystery writing. Born in Malaya and raised in India, she used her experience as a salesgirl as inspiration for her first novel, Death in High Heels, which she based on a fantasy of murdering an irritating coworker. The same year, she debuted her most famous character, Inspector Cockrill, whose adventures she followed until 1957. The film version of the second Cockrill mystery, Green for Danger, is considered one of the best-ever screen adaptations of a classic English mystery. She also found success writing children’s fiction. Her Nurse Matilda series, about a grotesque nanny who tames ill-behaved children, was adapted for the screen in 2005, as Nanny McPhee. She received Edgar Award nominations for the short stories “Twist for Twist” and “Poison in the Cup,” as well as one for her nonfiction work Heaven Knows Who.
