I'm Sadie and I'm nearly nine. Mum's a childminder, but she doesn't have to mind me. I can mind myself, easy-peasy. Lucky for Mum, because now she's got the flu, so I've got to mind her - and help with all the babies!

Review quote

"Funny and warm-hearted ... through Sadie's uncritical eyes, the babies' antics and adult failings are the stuff of comedy ... Wittily illustrated" Daily Mail "A fine eye for the details of chaos" Independent on Sunday "High energy, zappy storytelling" Junior Bookshelf "The humorous account of a vivacious girl coping cheerfully and resourcefully with a problem life ... Very entertaining reading ... Should appeal to most primary school readers, particularly girls, and is well served by its attractive cover" School Librarian
