Lulu’s back, and she’s just as mischievous (and bratty) as ever. Her parents are going away WITHOUT HER! AND they’ve hired a babysitter to take care of her while they’re gone. Obviously, this situation cannot be allowed to continue, so Lulu starts her campaign to have the sitter call her parents back home. However, neither sickness, running away, or destroying her room work. What does she have to do to get rid of Ms. Sonia Sofia Solinsky? Turns out that Ms. Sonia Sofia Solinsky doesn’t scare easily, because she’s a retired spy, code name Triple S. This changes everything! Triple S keeps Lulu in line by offering to teach her the essentials of being a spy. Whenever Lulu balks at something, Triple S threatens to leave and stop the training. Can Lulu have met her match? Cornell’s black and white drawings continue to bring Lulu to life. Viorst’s sly humour permeates the text, coming to the forefront when she directly addresses the reader. Another hit in the series.
