Ida Early Comes Over the Mountainby Robert Burch, D. Brodie
Life has been lonely for the Sutton children since their mother died, so it's a happy day when Ida Early comes to be their housekeeper. Ida would rather read the comics out loud than wash dirty dishes. She's a champ at tiddlywinks, and at the drop of a hat she entertains them with tall tales about her past exploits. Has she really been a lion tamer? A cook on a pirate ship? And a stunt pilot? One thing the Suttons know for sure - with Ida around, anything is possible.

It was the best book I ever read.I think every kids should like.
I thought this was one of the best books I have ever read! The author pointed out a lot of comparisons in this book, such as 'Ida was as tall as a telephone pole.' I really liked how Ida exaggerated with tall tales. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes stories that you cannot put down.
