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.

I loved Milly-Molly-Mandy as a child and was delighted to rediscover her to read to my own daughter. At 4, I wondered if she was a little young to enjoy the now rather old-fashioned style with less conversation than some more modern books, but Milly-Molly-Mandy's adventures with her friends and family have captured my daughter's imagination and this has become her favourite book. Each simple, sweet chapter makes perfect bedtime reading and I'm particularly delighted that Puffin have retained the original, beautiful illustrations. A joy for adults and children alike.

I adored Milly-Molly-Mandy stories as a little girl, and now, 25 years later, I rediscovered them for reading to my daughter. I wondered if, at 4, she was a little too young to enjoy Joyce Lankester Brisley's (now) rather old fashioned style of writing, but how wrong could I be. We read a chapter a night, and although there's more narrative than conversation, the simple, sweet stories and beautiful illustrations have captured my daughter's imagination, often making her laugh out loud. This book is a joy to read together and as we're now on the last chapter, I'm just about to order the other three volumes. I'm particularly delighted that Puffin have retained the charming illustrations that I loved so much as a child. Buy it - Milly-Molly-Mandy Stories will enchant adult and child alike.

A friend of mine called who lives in London gave Milly Molly Mandy to me. I got this book when I was three and I'm still going to be reading it when I'm 25 years old. There are lots of stories to make ourself happy and joyful. My name is Fiona Alice Hitchcock, I am aged six and a half. The special thing I like about Milly Molly Mandy is that she has short, strait hair. I wish I could read more stories by Joyce Lankester Brisley.

As a child I loved the Milly-Molly-Mandy stories and now my own daughter enjoys reading the stories herself. In this first book we are introduced to Milly-Molly-Mandy, her family, friends and the lovely little village she lives in. These are gentle, sweet and heart warming stories and perfect for a child to read alone or to have read to them. My little girl loves the stories where Milly-Molly-Mandy keeps shop and when the teacher comes to stay the best. In an ever changing world, it is delightful to find these books still as they were originally published, including the map of the village and Milly-Molly-Mandy's striped dress. These are truly delightful books and still relevant today as they deal with universal themes of friendship, growing up and doing everyday things children can relate to.

I recall enjoying these stories in primary school as a child and I have just started ordering the series for my 7 year old daughter. Not only does she love reading them, but also having them read to her as a bedtime story.
'Milly Molly Mandy Stories' is the first book in the series that my daughter received and as soon as we had finished reading it together she asked for the next book in the series!
The stories are simple but prove that true pleasure often comers from the simplest of things that occur in everyday life. The pleasure from making things as presents for others, the joy of sharing with friends, the respect shown for nature, the responsibility taught to a little girl to think of others as well as herself. Ordinary situations can be wonderful opportunities for learning about how to gain the most out of life.
I recommend this book (and the others in the series) to any parent of young children (probably more suited to little girls than boys)and also for anyone wishing to give a treasured gift to any small child.

This is one of the books I learned to read over 70 years ago, so I was delighted to find that it was still available. My little 5 year old granddaughter is just growing out of picture books with simple stories and I find it difficult to find something for her age group. She loves being read these stories as much as I did when I was her age.

Reasonable story and writing style but very repetitive and the author has insisted on using full proper nouns throughout. Really needs significantly better pronoun use.
There are only so many time you can read:
'Milly Molly Mandy said...'
'Best friend Susan said.....'
before you give up.
