Review

Milly-Molly-Mandy lives with her mother, father, uncle, aunt, grandmother and grandfather in a 'nice white cottage with a thatched roof'. In each of these twenty-one stories, she sets off on an adventure, sometimes with the help of 'little-friend-Susan' or neighbour Billy Blunt.

First published in 1925, Milly-Molly-Mandy's stories now have a nostalgic charm that will appeal to parents and grandparents who will remember them from their own childhood. However, these gentle stories of activities such as giving a party or setting out on a picnic, told in simple and direct language, still offer much to attract today's young readers.
