Lulu's Mysterious Mission

Lulu's Mysterious Mission. Judith Viorst. Illustrated by Kevin Cornell. 2014. 185 pages. [Source: Library]

First sentence: But first let's go find Lulu, who is in the living room screeching, "No! No! No!" although she doesn't screech much anymore.

Premise/plot: Lulu is DEVASTATED to learn that her parents are set to vacation without her. She'll be left behind in the care of a babysitter. Her babysitter is Sonia Sofia Solinsky. And it will be a fierce match between the two...or will it?! Does the babysitter have a secret? And are these two kindred spirits after all?

My thoughts: Definitely a fun story. I love how smart the babysitter is. I love how Lulu even at her most difficult can't surprise and outwit her. I'd recommend all three books.
