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.
