Book Description

Sept. 30 2001
Two stories in one, the first of which features Jennifer who has a diary and her friend Iolanthe, who has lots of ideas for stories but no diary in which to write them. In the second tale, Mrs Mackle thinks Susan Solly is the worst child ever. But just what did Susan do that was so terrible?

Product Details


Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6-These two stories by Anne Fine are read here by British actress Sophie Ward. Jennifer's Diary is the story of two girls, Jennifer and Iolanthe. Jennifer has a diary but her writing is very uninspired. Iolanthe, bursting with creativity and thoughts begging to be expressed, has no diary of her own-and she wants Jennifer's diary. The Worst Child I Ever Had is a conversation between three babysitters, comparing stories about the worst children they ever cared for. These stories are rather dry and not initially compelling. Written for a British audience, the vocabulary is peppered with Briticisms. The narrator attempts to provide different voices for each character but only manages minimal distinctions. American children might find the British accent a deterrent.
