Description

This irresistible third illustrated chapter book starring Judith Viorst's Lulu is full of hilarious hijinks, delightful twists, and a top-secret mission

Eeny meeny miney mo,
That babysitter's got to go.

Lulu has put her tantrum-throwing days behind her. That is, until her parents announce that they are going on vacation--WITHOUT LULU. Not only that, but they are leaving her with the formidable Ms. Sonia Sofia Solinsky, who says hello by bellowing, "The Eagle has landed," and smiles at you with the kind of smile that an alligator might give you before eating you for dinner.

The second her parents are out of the house, Lulu tries out several elaborate schemes to bring them straight back. But just when she seems to finally be making some headway, her babysitter reveals an astonishing secret...one that has Lulu crossing her fingers that her parents will go on vacation all the time--without her.
