Synopsis: Book by Strasser, Todd
From Library Journal:
Grade 5-8-Heavenly Litebody is a purple-haired, pierced-and-tattooed nanny who appears, seemingly uninvited, at the home of a blended family of five children ranging in age from 2 to 16, whose antics have driven their previous caregivers packing. Heavenly may not look like Mary Poppins, but she employs a similar modus operandi and has her own brand of magic. Ten-year-old Robby admits to having placed an urgent ad with InstantNanny.com when their current nanny walked off the job while his parents are away on business, but he vehemently denies giving the access code for their security system to this Internet nanny. The children initially chafe under Heavenly's authoritarian regime, but, gradually, the imposition of order on their heretofore chaotic existence wins them over. Returning from their trip, the parents are surprised and appalled to find this apparition in their home and, over the objections of their children, are determined to replace her. Predictably, the new nanny mysteriously fails to arrive on the morning of her first day, the security system is once again on the fritz, and Heavenly is busy preparing breakfast in the kitchen. Readers may scoff at the premise that a family with two teens needs both a nanny and a housekeeper, but those who enjoyed Mary Poppins will laugh at her modern-day counterpart. A slight story, but entertaining nevertheless.
