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.

author’s comments:
Jill Murphy (1949-2021) began drawing and writing stories at a very early age and was already putting books together (albeit with a stapler) by the time she was six. She was only eighteen when she wrote The Worst Witch. Her books about the lovable but disaster-prone Mildred Hubble sold more than five million copies worldwide and became much-loved classics. Jill Murphy also wrote and illustrated several award-winning picture books for younger children.
