Jack's new babysitter is awesome, but a bit crazy. Pizza for dinner, juggling lessons and sleeping outside - with no tent!

But will Jack let his worrying get in the way of having fun?


Jack likes things to be just right and he always likes to do things the same way. So how will he cope when Cousin Sue, who he has never met, comes to babysit?

Especially when Cousin Sue is not your typical babysitter - she is a circus performer!

At first, Jack does not want Sue to babysit him. He wants to be with his Mum and Dad. How could they leave him?

But Cousin Sue has fun in store for Jack - he just needs to open his mind and not worry so much!

She shows him that it is ok to do different things, like sleep under the stars and eat pizza outside, and maybe one day he will end up being a circus performer, just like Cousin Sue!

Hey Jack! fans will love this new book. It has a great message about stepping out of your comfort zone and is a great introduction to chapter books for your younger students, especially boys.

This book was included in our February 2013 Primary Fiction Standing Order selection.
