Synopsis: A collection of short chilling tales follows the experiences of fifteen baby sitters who find more than their share of challenges when they accept seemingly routine sitter jobs. K. AB.
From Kirkus Reviews: Despite the subtitle--``Fifteen Baby-Sitting Tales of Terror''--most of the stories in this surprisingly uneven collection from Gorog (Please Do Not Touch, 1993, etc.) have a lot more baby-sitting than terror; one, ``The Three Brothers,'' is more silly than scary, and another, ``Sit,'' has nothing to do with baby-sitting. A few do rise above mediocrity, however. ``The Snooping Sitter'' is done in by her nosiness when she opens a closet door to find out a family's secrets. Sasha, in ``Doglicks,'' is scared of baby-sitting until she gets a job at the home of a family with a wonderful golden retriever. In ``A Small Child and a Large Sitter,'' little Caroline Louise Emily Beth gets a wonderful (and slimy) revenge on her unpleasant sitter. The best story of the lot is ``Toads and Slime,'' a humorous parody of all those fairy tales in which someone is cursed before finding true love. The rest of the tales are either weak or, in some cases, incomplete; the book's striking cover art will pull in the unsuspecting. (Fiction. 12+) -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP.
