Nurse Matilda returns in her third and final adventure, taking the Brown children in hand once again when their naughty behavior wreaks havoc at the local hospital. Removed to the seashore in order to recuperate, the little Browns engage in another series of mischievous pranks, each one prolonged in a most uncomfortable way by Nurse Matilda’s magical black walking stick. The sense of repetition in Nurse Matilda Goes to Hospital is even more pronounced than in the second title, rendering it somewhat tedious. The one humorous moment comes with the seashore tea-party given by Aunt Adelaide Stitch to her stuffy friends. But despite this entertaining episode, the third entry in this series felt completely flat to me, and I was forced to conclude that this and Nurse Matilda Goes to Town were superfluous repetitions, riding the coat-tails of the first book, and far too formulaic to truly move or entertain. As mentioned in my review of the first two Nurse Matilda books, this was illustrated by the author's cousin, Edward Ardizzone, and was reprinted in 2005 (original publication year: 1975) to coincide with the release of the movie Nanny McPhee, which is based loosely upon the series.
Review: Nurse Matilda Goes to Hospital (Nurse Matilda #3)User Review - Goodreads
The first book of the series which brought the whole idea of Nanny Mcphee from the adapted movie entertains me more than the sequels. The sequels is very much paralleled to the first book therefore it lost its lust to provide an intriguing element for the readers to experience.
