A reassuring and hilarious look at a child s trepidation about meeting his first babysitter then realizing he adores her! When Ollie s parents hire a babysitter, Ollie s cuddle buddy Stubbs imagines the worst: what if the babysitter sprays them with stinky perfume . . . what if the babysitter only cooks yucky green vegetables? But when Ollie and Stubbs meet Ella . . . what happens next just might surprise you! Anke Wagner s pitch-perfect story and Anne-Kathrin Behl s humorous illustrations will comfort and entertain!"

We received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review. 
This is a really cute book you have a young boy and his cuddle buddy. Ollie and Stubbs are going to have a babysitter for the first time. Stubbs thinks of the worst things when having a babysitter. Varying from someone being a neat freak to wearing pink and a lot of bows. The pictures are very colorful and funny. At the end of the story Stubbs realizes that the babysitter that came was not all that bad and the babysitter would love to come back and watch Ollie.
K loved the babysitter and her idea of being a pirate, he asked me if he could have a babysitter like that. 
I think it was neat to have an imagination on how the babysitter would look like. I think kids would enjoy this and get a kick out of a boy and his cuddle buddy's imagination. 
I think parents will enjoy reading this to their children especially if they are going to have a babysitter for the first time.
