    1. Saki has a few of these "got lost, time to make trouble" stories, and this is a fairly nice one. This time, it's a young woman, and she decides to take on the job of governess, just lately "offered" by someone coming to pick an expected young woman from the train station. She proceeds to dance around the household demands and thoroughly annoy everyone, right before delivering one final hit to everyone's sanity before she goes. It's a cute story, though not the best in the "Beasts and Super Beast [...]


    2. A short but very fun read. I read an excerpt during my SAT Reading practice and fell in love with Lady Carlotta right away. I needed to know how the story ended! I googled it immediately after finishing my practice. At least I can say that the SAT did something, haha!


    3. Really enjoyed the mischievous protagonist of this short story. Heard it as part of CSA Word's Great Classic Stories 2 audio collection. One of my favorites.


    4. Most intelligent short story I've read in a while. It's very witty, and the satire of a wealthy family being brought to their knees by a woman pretending to be a nanny is so hilarious to read.
