Oliver, 6 years, cunningly outsmarts his mother and the old babysitter, Mrs. Bruus,
because he prefers Josephine, 16, beautiful and good-natured. But things don’t quite
work out, and Oliver must use all his ingenuity, when he finds himself locked out of the
house without a babysitter, and with his baby sister locked in.
