There's just no place quite like Nanny's house. When you're little, it's a fascinating world of nooks, crannies, knick-knacks, and adventures around every corner. It's hard not to be pokey... and nosey... and, well, downright messy. Before the day is through, eggs will break, paint will spill and the cat will be wearing a molasses hairdo. Here's a fun peek in and around Nanny's house, from the blissfully carefree perspective of an inquisitive and vivacious little girl. A humorous, gentle reminder of how much fun getting into mischief can be.
