Daisy Dalrymple sings hey, nanny, nanny
Nanny Gilpin has never seen the Crystal Palace, so Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher makes a day of it—bringing her cousins, her three-year-old twins, her step-daughter Belinda, and the nurserymaid. When Mrs. Gilpin fails to return from the ladies’, Daisy finds instead the body of another woman, dressed in a nanny's uniform.
Meanwhile, Belinda and the cousins spot Mrs. Gilpin chasing yet another nanny into the park. They find Mrs. Gilpin unconscious in a small lake inhabited by huge concrete dinosaurs.
Mrs. Gilpin can't remember what happened after leaving the twins in the nurserymaid's care. To help, Daisy and her husband, DCI Alec Fletcher, must discover why the amnesic Mrs. Gilpin deserted her charges to follow the missing third nanny.
