it was ok
bookshelves: kids

I think it's best to stop after the first story in this series, mostly because the magical nanny who is supposed to be able to get kids to no longer be naughty doesn't seem able to make it stick. Books 2 and 3 have Nurse Matilda returning to the same family because they seem to forget how to not be horrible children. Eh. The latter two books are also essentially copies of the first story. The same progression of events, the same lessons, the same caricatures.
