In wartime England, the two very spoiled Gray children are about to meet their very numerous and ill-behaved cousins, the Greens. Enter Nanny McPhee, who discovers that Mrs. Green and the children are fighting another war altogether—this one against scheming relatives intent on taking away their farm. Nanny McPhee must use her magic to teach her mischievous charges five new lessons, or losing the farm will be the least of their problems . . .

Written by Emma Thompson, this is a charming tale about country children and city children that will delight readers of all ages.

Praise for Nanny McPhee Returns

"Author Emma Thompson delights listeners with spot-on observations about family relationships and working friendships. As performer, she presents an exuberant and enthusiastic accounting of each character she has created...Only the most jaded listener will be able to refrain from laughing out loud." - AudioFile magazine, Earphones Award Winner 
 
"All the magic of the movie version illuminates every page, but what is a special gift, is hearing Thompson put the book-on-tape narration world on notice...Having an Oscar-winning writer in Emma Thompson doesn't hurt things when it comes to putting movie words into the page-turning form of a book. Hearing those words come to life through Thompason's acting proficiency is a match made in heaven." - SheKnows.com

“Thompson’s intimate narrative feels as though she’s letting you in on the joke… This good, old fashioned moral yarn is a delightful listen.” – School Library Journal

“…not to be missed is Emma Thompson reading her own Nanny McPhee Returns. In addition to the wit and warmth that comes through in the reading of the story, the recording includes the film diary Thompson wrote, which alternates with chapters of the book.” – LMC Library Media Connection
