Mr. Large in Charge

author/illustrator: Jill Murphy

series name:
Large Family

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 as restful as she'd hoped. Wise moms, well-meaning dads, and their spirited offspring will all laugh in recognition at this droll, expressively illustrated story.
