Gabby Duran is the coolest babysitter in the galaxy. You might even say her skills are “out of this world.” Gabby was a babysitter to the stars – and now her new clients are from another star.
Gabby Duran and the Unsittables is Baby-Sitters Club meets Men in Black in this sweet, funny new middle grade series about a world-renowned tween babysitter who is recruited to take care of extra-terrestrial children. Your own tween is going to love this comedic and entertaining series. I know I would have LOVED this series as a girl, and am excited to introduce my own daughter to these books.
About the Book:
The Association Linking Intergalatics and Earthlings (hereby known as A.L.I.E.N.) has a new member. After months of investigation, Gabby Duran, Associate 4118-25125A, has proven herself to be a babysitter extraordinaire. Her celebrity clients fly her around the country to care for their rambunctious little humans. Our spy, Associate 4118-23432B, otherwise known as Edwina, believes Gabby can be trusted with the truth: aliens are living among humans on Earth. And here at A.L.I.E.N we believe that even extraterrestrials need a babysitter now and then. No one was up to the task…until now.
After accepting the top-secret position, Edwina has paired our new associate up with her first charge, a little girl from the planet Flarknartia. The timing for associate 4118-25125A is less than ideal. It’s a school day on Planet Earth, Gabby’s audition for the solo part in the band is tonight, and this tiny alien is a bit more than meets the eye.
Can Gabby Duran, Associate 4118-25125A, First Sitter to the Unsittables, keep her otherworldly charge safe in the unpredictable halls of middle-school and keep A.L.I.E.N hidden?
