My six year old daughter loves the Naughty Little Sister books and I think this volume is her favourite, where the Naughty Little Sister teams up with her close friend Bad Harry in some of the stories. Of course, these books do seem a little dated now - I had to explain why in "Granny's wash day" it took the entire day to do the washing for example, but the differences add to the charm of the stories. There is much that children will still understand and relate to; not wanting to eat their crusts, having to be quiet at formal occasions, decorating the church at Christmas are all things they will probably be familiar with. My daughter's favourite story is the one where the two naughty children go to the library and are as good as gold - until it is discovered that they have found a real mouse in a little hole in the wall. These are lovely books which make ideal bedtime or read-alone stories. I used to love them as a child and I think they should be on every child's bookshelf.

Why do children love hearing stories of other children misbehaving? I'm not sure but I remember loving these stories as a child (especially "Crusts"... A novel way of disposing of those pesky things!) and now my boys of 4 and 7 are enjoying them too. I bought the book wondering whether my boys would take to the old fashioned stories of a naughty little girl but I need not have worried. The charming stories and illustrations of everyday events such as going to the library or wash day are perfect to be read alone by a child 7 plus, and the narrative voice that draws the listener in, and short length of each story make them ideal to read aloud too. Enjoy!

These books are amazing and I still credit them as one of the best memories from my childhood - would recommend them to anybody - having found them on Amazon, I'm buying for my own trip down memory lane (and I might share them with my niece when I'm done reading)

My children are 2 and 6 and we read one of these every night. I loved these as a child and now they (boy and girl) love them. Timeless magic.

My mum read these books to me when I was a little girl and now I've brought them for my 5 year year old daughter. She loves me reading them to her at bedtime. Hope she will remember me reading them to her like I remember my Mum reading them to me.

As I read these stories as a child I was keen to share them with my little boy.
The stories are beautifully written and short enough to fit a whole story in at bedtime.
My son who is now eight, will frequently ask for his favourite ones!

My four year old grandson is entranced with the stories as my own children were. They are timeless. The stories fire the imagination and we spent the next day playing "Islands"
