Milly-Molly-Mandy Stories by Joyce Lankester Brisley is loved by new readers and old friends alike. The enchanting and classic adventures of a little country girl.

The Milly-Molly-Mandy stories are perfect for reading aloud. They have been loved and shared for over 80 years with their timeless sense of fun and beautiful detail. Milly-Molly-Mandy lives in a tiny village in the heart of the countryside. She is always busy doing things, and whether she is earning money to give a party, minding the village shop, having a picnic or going sledging, you're sure to have fun when Milly-Molly-Mandy's around! The adventures of this lively little girl and her chums little-friend-Susan and Billy Blunt first appeared over eighty years ago and they have been delighting children ever since. 'Simple, satisfying stories' - Shirley Hughes 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.
