Tina, Vince and Adrian must endure their childless Aunt Marsha babysitting them for 3 weeks while their parents have a second honeymoon in Paris. Aunt Marsha is terrible – she cooks cabbage soup & kidney pie , banishes their beloved dog Mandy outside (after she steals her knickers off the line) and makes them go to bed at 7pm. But the worst part is when she throws away Adrian’s comics and suddenly, in the middle of a storm, everything comes crashing down. A funny touching story about families.p.76 The first breakfast

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0439644852, Hardcover)

Mary Poppins meets Mrs. Doubtfire in this hilarious story about three kids whose aunt is in charge while the parents are away.

Families are strong enough to survive a little separation-- aren't they? For Bettina, Vince, and Aidan it's a testing time. They have to find a way to survive Aunt Marsha for three weeks while their parents take a much-needed vacation. It won't be easy. Aunt Marsha wants the dog outside. NOW. And the comic books MUST go. And just to cheer them up, how about a nice big slice of kidney pie?! Aunt Marsha seems very much in control, until a near-tragedy bares her deepest fear, and ends up bringing her closer to the kids than any of them could ever have imagined.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:17:02 -0400)

When Mum and Dad go on a much-needed vacation to "find their lost romance," three Australian siblings are forced to spend three weeks with their least favorite aunt.
