Product Description

Review

'Full of such inventive naughtiness - it may be better to keep these away from your children.' Emma Thompson

About the Author

Christianna Brand was born in 1909. As a child she lived with the family of her cousin, Edward Ardizzone. Christianna had many jobs until finally, in 1941, her first crime novel Death in High Heels was published, which was followed by successful crime novels and historical romance as well as children's books. She died in 1988. Edward Ardizzone was born in 1900. He illustrated for the Radio Times, exhibited his art in prestigious galleries and, in 1936, Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain was published - the first of the books. In 1956 Tim All Alone was the first book to win the Kate Greenaway Award. In 1962 Christianna and Edward collaborated on an anthology of stories called Naughty Children, which featured a tale about Nurse Matilda, followed by Nurse Matilda Goes to Town (in 1966) and Nurse Matilda Goes to Hospital (in 1973).

Doting parents,Mr and Mrs Brown,have failed to discipline their countless clan of children...resulting in household chaos that would make even Supernanny run for cover.But not Nurse Matilda who mysteriously turns up out of the blue one dark,stormy night and instantly uses her magical powers to reform the Brown children's terrible antics.A brilliant book full of great humour and fabulius drawings.A gem of a book!

This was for a friend called Matilda. Apparently formed the basis of Nanny McPhee! Font a little small perhaps.
