Product Description

Review

These simple, satisfying stories have that special something which makes children want to read them over and over again, even in our very different times (Shirley Hughes)

About the Author

Joyce Lankester Brisley (1896 - 1978) wrote and drew books from an early age; she had her first fairy story published in a children's paper at the age of thirteen. She studied at art school and, when she was twenty, had pictures hung in the Royal Academy. However, she enjoyed writing and illustrating stories best, and the Milly-Molly-Mandy series deservedly became her most well-loved and famous creation, adored by little girls everywhere, even now almost eighty years on after they were written.

Format: Paperback
I think this is my favourite of all the Milly-Molly-Mandy books .It has some really lovely stories,and the illustrations are just beautiful.The ones I like best are Milly-Molly-Mandy Has a Surprise,where,without spoiling the story,her whole family work together to give her something she really likes;and Milly-Molly-Mandy Gets Locked In,which contains one of my very favourite illustrations,Milly-Molly-Mandy visiting little-friend-Susan and her new little sister.
This is a very good book to read to young children,or for children about 5 to 11 to read for themselves.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Milly Molly Mandy when I was a child and, so, bought this book for my 9 year old daughter. We read it together and both thoroughly enjoyed it. I wish there were more authors around today who would write this kind of story without having to put a modern "slant" on things - not every girl wants to read about boyfriends and make-up!

Format: Paperback
I loved MMM at six or so and am thrilled that my five year old is discovering the gentle, simple stories with just as much enthusiasm. The format is simple. Each story has parts for a long cast, either mother and father and the aunt, uncle and grandparents, or the exterior cast of litle friend Susan, Billy Blunt, and the neighbours. There is a slow reveal in each story - for example in "MMM gets a surprise" MMM gets her own bedroom. The gradual gentle set up for the story is just enough that by the penultimate page I could see my daughter thinking what a perfect bedroom the plain but pretty store room would make. When MMM discovers joyously that it's to be her room my daughter (whose own room is not dissimilar) whispered, entranced, "I wish it was my room". The spell is perfect. It's pale green and primrose, lit by sunlight with not a trace of pink or a single gadget but my little one was spellbound.

I've given this and Milly Molly Mandy stories as a fifth birthday present several times now and it never fails. (Mums always thrilled too.)

This was a present for my granddaughter who really enjoyed the story and illustrations. It is a lovely book for girls to cherish.
The book is well presented, arrived on time and was well packaged.
