'Isla Fisher is hilarious' DAVID WALLIAMS

About the Author

Isla Fisher began acting as a child and has worked solidly in television and film for the past 25 years. She has appeared in Home And Away, The Great Gatsby and Definitely Maybe, to name a few. She also studied in Paris to become a clown for two years before realising that there is not much call for miming 'the wall'! Isla has played many roles over the years, from a bonkers bridesmaid in Wedding Crashers to the poster girl for consumerism in Confessions Of A Shopaholic. But her favourite role has been being a mummy to daughters Olive and Elula and son Monty. Isla has been making up stories at bedtime for them every night since they were born. These books are for her children, as a reminder of all the fun they have at bedtime reading books and sharing stories. Eglantine Ceulemans spent her childhood reading Belgian comics. In 2007 she joined the Emile Cohl School of Art in Lyon, France, transforming her passion for illustration into a vocation. She loves working in an intuitive way, combining humor and sensitivity, and using different mediums and techniques. Eglantine currently resides in Lyon.

Reviews

Perfect for reading aloud, or for beginner readers... the plentiful illustrations make a good transition from picture books and add hugely to children's enjoyment. * Parents In Touch *
This book deserves five stars because it's so funny and creative. I would certainly want a babysitter like Marge! My favourite part was..well...I don't know, I loved it all. It was entertaining, funny and you just wanted to read on. * Shell Louise *
'My kids are young but my eldest enjoys books like this one read out loud to her at bedtime. I love the humour and the funny and charming stories. I love that Marge is mischievous and causes a lot of mayhem!' * A Mum Reviews *
'The Marge In Charge books are lovely - fun and easy to read...The characters are very relatable, the relationship between Jakey and Jemima being a typical sibling love/hate friendship!' * Real Mum Reviews *
'Jack loves the character of Marge - he thinks she is incredibly funny and yes, he would like a babysitter like her! When I asked for his thoughts on the series, he said 'Good....No, BRILLIANT!' and I can tell he is a big fan already. Here's hoping there is more in the series as Isla Fisher has created some fantastic characters who we can't to read more about...We are definitely impressed with these books and these make a great addition to Jack's bookshelves.' * I always believe in futures *
'Marge and the Great Train Rescue (Piccadilly Press, GBP5.99), had us captivated from page 1' * Mummy in the City *
Again my daughter loved it. It is well written so that she looks forward to the next page to find out what happened next. Three separate stories in the book, each with lots of descriptive words allowing the reader to fully imagine being there in the story. * Mojo Mums *
perfect reading between siblings before bed * Boo Roo and Tigger Too *
had us giggling and smiling all the way through... the hilarious books make amazing holiday reads for children * Mummy In The City *
Isla Fisher with her zany sense of the ridiculous and Eglantine Ceulemans, with her wonderfully cartoon-like portraits of Marge and the children, a have once again bought her flamboyantly to life in another series of outlandish adventures which are perfectly designed to appeal ,not just to children, but to the child in us all. Well scripted for early readers and young readers discovering their first serious chapter book, there will be smiles all around as the children in your life relate to Marge in charge once again, with chaos all around, wild adventure and a good dose of hilarity ruling the day * Blue Wolf Reviews *

The three books we have by Isla Fisher, Marge in Charge, Marge and the Pirate Baby and Marge and the Great Train Rescue are so much fun. We are really loving getting to know the characters and E finds it hilarious that an adult is causing lots of mischeif. These books are light hearted fun reads which I feel school aged children will really love and enjoy. The books include pictures and font that is easy to read with suitable language that children can identify with. We are really loving them and I know you will too! * Candyfloss and Dreams *
