My favourite character was Jemima Button. She always has the best ideas.Yes I would recommend it.

I like it because when Marge comes to babysit Jemima and Jakeypants Button she is always causing mischief like the time she flipped a pancake onto the ceiling and they had to wait to fall into their mouth. The best thing is that when Marge comes and Jemima’s parents are gone she takes whatever she is wearing on her head off and out tumbles her rainbow hair which is green,blue,orange,red and yellow.

This is a funny book.

It is fiction.

It's written by Isla Fisher and this book is one of the stories she told to her children. It's actually three stories. They are all as funny as each other.

It was an amazing book really funny.Marge is the best babysitter I would love to have her look after me. I wonder what the parents would think if they knew she was a duchess. I can't wait to read the whole series. I wonder Wharton happens. I recommend this for all ages.

I liked it because it is funny. Marge is my favourite because she changes all of mummy’s rules. If you liked this book you should read the other books in the series.

Marge in charge,

I think it was good because Marge is a magician and she helped with the school concert. and I liked when Marge fell in the fountain. I think it's a good book for people to read.

Its an amazing read with lots of humour and funny illustrations. It has a very different story line with different parts of the story with Marge babysitting at the start ,then a party with Marge. It is for readers aged 7 to 12. And is for early readers and Ks2 children.

Very good as marge was a good baby sitter doing lots of good things.

Its a very funny book and it makes children like babysitters a bit more. Its about a little girl called Jemima button and her brother Jaakey button being babysitted by a mad royal duchess. And the babysitter gets them to do all the things on their mummys list but gets them to do them in a fun way.All the things that their mummy cant do with Jakey marge can.And sometimes marge changes their mummys list! In this book is three stories one about just marge babysitting .Another about marge going to a birthday party. And another about her going to Jakey and Jemimas school for a whole day.

I love this book because Marge is in disguise as an old granny, but when the adults go, she changes into a girl who has rainbow hair, lightening strike on her t-shirt.
