Minerva is a spoiled child, who acts out because her parents are too busy to spend time with her. She has had fifty-two nannies in fifty-two weeks! It is the fifty-third nanny that finally turns things around. She dubs Minerva “the unruly queen” and wants to banish her to a cave with beasts on Petulant Peak. This is enough to scare Minerva into much more obedient behavior. Even the most well-behaved reader will recognize their own naughty side in this humorous, rhyming story.
