The Royal Babysitters by Clementine Beauvais

Bloomsbury Publishing, 2014. ISBN 9781408850770
(Age: 9+) Highly recommended. The Royal Babysitters is a fun story which is also quick moving and full of hilarious antics. Anna and Holly need money for the holiday of a lifetime and so they accept the job as the Royal Babysitter. How hard can it be to look after a baby prince? Well, six princes and an invasion by the King of Danland really means a very tricky day for the girls.
Highly recommended for readers aged 9+. They will laugh at all the effort the two girls and their new friend, Prince Pepino, get up to as they lose babies, find babies, fight robot mermaids and defeat kooky kings. The events are descriptive and the addition of black and white cartoons only adds to the readers' understanding and the comedy included by the author.
