About the Author

Dorothy Edwards Dorothy Edwards dreamt up My Naughty Little Sister 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 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, aged 68. Shirley Hughes Shirley Hughes was born in 1927. After a year at Liverpool Art School studying costume design, Shirley moved on to the Ruskin School of Drawing in Oxford. She has written and illustrated over 50 books and sold more than eleven million copies. In both 1977 and 2004 she won the Kate Greenaway Medal, and in 1984 she won the Eleanor Farjeon Award. In 1999 she was awarded an OBE for services to children's literature and in 2000 was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. Shirley lives in London.

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!

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.

My grandaughter and I really enjoyed reading this book. We read a chapter every night as her bedtime story.
