Marge & The Great Train Rescue by Isla Fisher

Marge & The Great Train Rescue


We were recently sent 3 children’s books written by Isla Fisher. Kaycee read the first book, Marge In Charge while Ella read Marge and the Pirate baby and also the latest book, Marge And The Great Train Rescue. It’s out in paperback today and available from Amazon (see below for the links) and all good booksellers.
Both girls loved the books and I think they’re great because they have three short stories per book. It makes them a great size for bedtime reading, whether you’re reading to them or they’re reading to themselves 🙂

Ella’s Review

Marge and the great train rescue is a funny book about a babysitter who has rainbow colour hair (like a unicorn)and who is a royal duchess. This book deserves five stars because it’s so funny and creative. I would certainly want a babysitter like  Marge! The story is about Jemima and Jake Button who go on a train to the zoo. A cow is stood in the middle of the tracks. They eventually get the cow off the tracks and when they do they get to sit in the train drivers cabin. They get home just in time for their parents to arrive.

Marge and the great train rescue

Marge In Charge

This review is written by Kaycee aged 12

There are three stories in one book; the first story started with the two children (Jemima and Jake) talking about how they scared off all of their previous babysitters…….then Marge turns up to the house. In the middle, Marge started changing the pre-written rules that the children’s mum had written. She made Jake eat his vegetables and even made him take a bath (which he never does), at the end of the short story the children are left to tidy up all of the mess created, and trust me there was a lot, whilst Marge had a nap! Then the parents came home, Marge had just enough time to cover her rainbow coloured hair up with a hat. 🙂

Marge is the main character, she is fun, a bit naughty and basically an adult on the out side but a child at heart. The book is set in all different places but the first story is set at the children’s home…where all of the mischiefs happens. My favourite part was..well…I don’t know, I loved it all. It was entertaining, funny and you just wanted to read on.

This book is suitable for all ages, but particularly younger readers aged 5-8. I would give this book five stars as I really enjoyed it. 🙂
