Synopsis- Ali, Jake, and their baby sister got excited when Nanny X walked through their doorway once more. After all, Nanny X was a secret agent with lots of cool gadgets, and she even let them help her on a case! But, all is normal now. After that case, Nanny X is now acting like… well, like a normal nanny. That is, until they find out about a criminal called the Angler. The Angler has threatened to destroy precious national treasures if a fish stature that was sent isn’t put up at the White House lawn. Will Nanny X and the kids save the day in time?
What I Thought– This was a really great sequel to Nanny X (see my review HERE)! Nanny X (the character) is a fun, slightly wacky, nanny who just so happens to be a secret government agent working for NAP (Nanny Action Patrol). That’s just the icing on the cake. It was a nice touch to have siblings Ali and Jake get along (well, maybe not 100%, but realistically close 🙂 ). I really like Ms. Rosenberg’s writing style. It captures the essence of being a kid perfectly (it’s told from Jake and Ali’s point-of-view, every other chapter (Jake, then Ali, then Jake, etc.)). I really like this series. It has just enough realism to make you think that it could happen in real life. This is a great book and a good series for young readers!
