Mr. Large in Charge

author/illustrator: Jill Murphy

Mrs. Large isn't feeling well, so Mr. Large sends her back to bed. "I'll take charge," he says. So while he and the children get busy vacuuming, dusting, and tidying, Mrs. Large settles down for a nice rest. But somehow ("I want my mommy!") Mrs. Large’s restful day (What’s that burning smell?) is not exactly restful. Wise moms, well-meaning dads, and their spirited offspring will all laugh in recognition at this expressively illustrated story.

When Mr. Large takes charge of the kids to give Mrs. Large the day off, her restful day doesn’t turn out quite as relaxing as hoped in this droll, relatable story.
