Nanny McPhee ReturnsBook - 2010
In a captivating novel written by an Academy and Golden Globe Award-winning actress and based on the film premiering in theaters in the winter of 2010, the Green family are trying to survive the war in their house in the English countryside, but unfortunately they are not nearly out of harm's way--a wicked uncle is intent on seizing the family fortune, the children miss their father who is away fighting and then the horrible cousins arrive! Simultaneous.
In wartime England, the two very spoiled Gray children are being sent to stay in the country with 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-against scheming relatives intent on taking their farm while Mr. Green is off fighting in the war. 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...
As World War I rages, the Green family try to cope with scheming relatives and the arrival of their horrible cousins with the aid of Nanny McPhee, in a volume that includes the author's reflections on the making of the movie.
