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.
