Publisher's Summary

Now a major motion picture.... For the Green family, it's going to be a summer of hard work, blackmail...and flying pigs!

The Green family is living quite happily on Deep Valley Farm until war breaks out. Father goes off to fight who knows where, the Greens' spoiled cousins come from the city to stay, and someone threatens to take the farm from them. Just when it seems things can't get any worse, the piglets escape and the children get completely Out of Control.

Only one person can be counted on in a situation like this: enter Nanny McPhee. But beware...Nanny McPhee is nothing like other nannies - and it's not just the warts!

With wit and warmth, Emma Thompson, writer and star of Nanny McPhee Returns, recounts one family's tumultuous summer in an audiobook that alternates between the story and a behind-the-scenes film diary, bringing a delightful and unique perspective to this funny and magical adventure for all ages.

    "As good as Nanny McPhee in person!"

    I downloaded this audio book just before a five-hour car ride with my two sons (ages 8 and 10) who normally fight non-stop. (They had already read the paperback version of the book so knew the story.) They sat still and listened for the ENTIRE car ride and then listened to it again on the way home. Thank you Nanny McPhee (and Emma Thompson)! P.S. I enjoyed it, too.

    "Listening to this feels like you're drinking cocoa"

    and sitting by a fire with Emma Thompson(who is in fact, your favorite aunt). She is telling you about her day making this movie,and alternating with the story itself. It's a marvelous interaction-a loving look at behind the scenes of movie making, and the wonderful wackiness of the story. Emma's humor about herself is charming and self deprecating (rather the opposite of a diva) and she is a great story teller in so many ways...

    Story
    "Good Listen for all ages."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It is a great listen for all ages, Emma Thompson does a great job at narrating at a level that should apeal to all age groups as she both tells the story and explains the "daily life" on set at the filming. There was a smile on my face from beginning to end.

    "Good Story, Good Read, Poor layout"

    I enjoyed the story, it was nice having it read by Emma Thompson (the voice and actress of Nanny McPhee). I didn't like the layout of the reading, she jummped from the story to the filming of the movie, back and forth, that part I didn't care for at all.

    Story
    "A fun and goofy ride."
    Would you listen to Nanny McPhee Returns again? Why?

    Of course — it's just the sort of fun-for-fun nonsense that one shouldn't listen to 5x in a summer but one must.


    What about Emma Thompson’s performance did you like?

    She has a whimsical way of puttering about through eccentric characters caught in all sorts of muddles.
