Every youngster who has ever been read to and packed off to bed by a baby-sitter will agree that Miss Pickett is indeed peculiar...and wonderful! From their first glimpse of the little white- haired bespectacled lady has she steps daintilly from Daddy's car, to the day she disappears from the corner of Magnolia Street, Carol and Bobby romp wide-eyed through a series of adventures that every child dreams of but seldom experiences.
Who ever saw a suitcase that puffed green smoke? Why did Bobby insist on keeping the old doormat in his room after the family bought a new one?
Miss Pickett is a baby-sitter who offers circuses at home, whistling tea pots, and an interview with the Big Bear. Peculiar? Miss Pickett is more than that, she's downright mysterious! (By way of explanation, Miss Pickett says, “My dear, I was born during a thunderstorm.”)
If you are a baby-sitter, this book may offer solutions to your problems. Just present the Peculiar Miss Pickett to your favorite members of the express-wagon set, and you'll be acclaimed the Baby-Sitter of the Year!
