Nanny X

Nanny X

by Madelyn Rosenberg

This action-packed and hilarious novel introduces a Mary Poppins for the twenty-first century.

What kind of nanny wears a motorcycle jacket, mirrored sunglasses, and a straw hat with flowers on top? When ten-year-old Ali and eight-year-old Jake find out that this odd woman named Nanny X is going to care for them, they’re understandably concerned. Imagine how they feel when she starts speaking into diapers? But wait; could it be that the diapers actually seem to be answering her back? Everything begins to make sense when the kids find out that Nanny X works for NAP, or Nanny Action Patrol, a group of crime busters who use being nannies as their covers. Nanny X and her diaper bag full of ingenious spy devices come in pretty handy when Ali’s friend is falsely arrested. In no time at all, Ali, her brother, and her baby sister are on a wild ride as they help their new nanny uncover a plot to smuggle stolen diamonds using hollow coconuts and trained chimps.
