More About the Author

Dorothy Edwards is most famous for My Naughty Little Sister which she dreamt up to keep her daughter quiet whilst on a family holiday in 1950. Dorothy based the character on her younger sister, Phyllis, and went on to write five books about her naughty little sister with wide acclaim.

Dorothy Violet Ellen Brown was born into a working-class family in Teddington on 6th November 1914. When her father returned from fighting in the First World War he threw his energies into teaching his daughter to read. Dorothy wrote her first story when she was four years old, which she since described as "exciting, horrifying and very misspelt".

With published poetry, short stories and articles throughout her twenties, Dorothy's attention turned towards children's books after she had two children of her own by her husband, Frank Edwards. Her daughter, Jane, tirelessly asked her mum to tell her stories, and it was only a matter of time before Dorothy wrote them down and they became timeless children's classics.


My Naughty Little Sister really found its home in Shirley Hughes' wonderful illustrations. Dorothy delighted in visiting schools and meeting children, her warmth and obvious enthusiasm held audiences spellbound. Her ability to make stories up on the spot, tailoring them to the kids in front of her, gave her a charm like no other.

Dorothy became a household name and her stories were read and loved across the globe. She became a fixture of a radio show in the 1950s called Read with Mother and she also wrote for Playschool and Jackanory.

Dorothy died in 1982 and was buried next to her sister. Her memory lives on as "an active champion of the cause of children's reading."

5.0 out of 5 stars Great first chapter book 15 Aug 2010
By Audy B
Format:Paperback
I just finished my four-and-a-half year old daughter my copy of this book, and she LOVED it. It brought back wonderful memories for me as well! It's all about the very everyday adventures of a little girl (set some time in the 1960s or 1970s, I'm guessing), as narrated by her big sister. Gorgeous.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely stories for little girls at bedtime 5 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback
I have the box set, and my five-year-old loves having Naughty Little Sister stories read to her at bedtime.

When she was younger, she identified more with the Naughty Sister, and found these later stories a little dull. Now that she's a big girl who goes to school, she's identifying more with the Big Sister who is telling the stories, has developed a very strong sense of morality (and keeps telling me she is going to put me on the "Raincloud" chart whenever I do something that she doesn't like), and is going much more for the Naughty Little Sister's attempts to be good - though she still emits a big laugh when she is naughty instead!

The stories in this book also feature some where the Naughty Sister is still only a toddler, which my daughter likes because her brother is only a toddler too.

The content of the stories suggest they are set round about the 1930s - I was the Naughty Little Sister's age in the 1970s, and I can vouch that they were old stories even then! - so sometimes I have to explain historical detail to my daughter, like why milk is being delivered in a horse and cart. But children are children, whatever the era, and this is one of the most realistic children in modern literature.

Excellent fun!
