KIRKUS REVIEW

 Smart, self-assured babysitter Amanda Smeedy doesn't know what she is in for when she meets the Eggmont kids. The first clue comes when Mr. and Mrs. Eggmont make a mad dash out the door. In rhyme that is forced but fun, Teague (The Secret Shortcut, 1996, etc.) tells how the Eggmont brats try to scare away clever Amanda. She yawns through their amazing exploits, and sits quietly eating ice cream after the children have worn themselves out trying to foil her. The illustrations are full of action and excitement; off-kilter perspectives fill the pages as the Eggmont children grow desperate for results. An amusing romp. (Picture book. 4-7)
