"Where in this racket can Nanny be?
When you get invited to a kitchen party at your grandmother’s house, there may be certain things you don’t expect to find: like moose and foxes and bears! In this exciting, playful romp through a Newfoundland kitchen party, there are an increasing number of animal party crashers…and one fun-loving Nanny smack dab in the middle of it all."

Editorial Reviews

"Such a fun, silly read! Upon arriving at her grandmother's for a kitchen party a girl discovers party crashing animals all over the house but her Nanny is nowhere to be found. With rhythmic narration, cute illustrations, and lots of animal friends it's a kitchen party like no other! My kids and I really enjoyed this one!"
