Nelly May Has Her Say by Cynthia DeFelice

To help her family, Nelly May gets a job as housekeeper and cook. The only problem is her new boss has a special language he expects her to learn.

What I thought: Hilarious! I can't wait to share this with the 2nd graders I visit once a month. The word play is terrific. Henry Cole's illustrations suit the story perfectly.
