Lydia, Christopher, and Natalie Hilliard hate that their parents are in the midst of a divorce. Because their father Daniel is an all-too-often unemployed actor, their mother Miranda gets temporary custody of them.
Desperate to spend more time with his family, Daniel cleverly responds to Miranda's ad for a housekeeper, disguised as the capable yet eccentric Madame Doubtfire. The kids want to keep their dad, but how far should they go to keep his secret?
This highly acclaimed book is now a Motion Picture from 20th Century Fox entitled Mrs. Doubtfire.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6 Although Miranda and Daniel have been divorced for a number of years, they still argue bitterly whenever they encounter one another. The children adore their father and would like to spend as much time with him as they can, but they live with their mother and will do anything to avoid getting her angry. So when Miranda decides to hire a housekeeper, Daniel, an unemployed actor, hatches a plot: he applies for the job dressed as a woman. While the children recognize him almost immediately, Miranda has no idea who the new cleaning woman is. She eventually discovers the deception, causing another fight with Daniel, but the children's determination to see their father softens their parents' attitude, and the parents part amiably. This plot strains credibility to the breaking point. It seems highly unlikely that Miranda would not recognize Daniel, given how easily the children did. Daniel's antics, in and out of costume, are more pointless than endearing. The emphasis of the story leans toward the parents rather than the children, and so although the children do grow in the end, the readers do not experience that growth with them; they are only told about it. Finally, the happy resolution is unearned and the story falls flat. Susan Fichtelberg, Woodbridge Public Library, N . J
