Description
Martha Felicity Molly-Anne May has a habit of losing her nannies. She's so naughty that even Mary Poppins wouldn t know what to do
Can the newest nanny, Miss Harrington-Chive, keep track of the little angel during their day out on the town? Or will Martha's behavior have the nanny screaming Martha, no until her voice goes hoarse?
And if Martha loses "this" nanny, what's her mommy to do?
