Milly-Molly-Mandy has delighted children for generations partly because her childhood is mostly so very different to that of any child growing up today. Milly-Molly-Mandy lives in a village with her parents, grandparents and her aunt and uncle. Everything she wants is very near to hand and, because there are no cars, she can wander where ever she likes! The addition of a lovely map of the village shows where she goes on her expeditions. But she is also becoming more independent – just like any little girl today. Shirley Hughes reflects on the magic of this everyday stories in her foreword to the edition.

One of a range of Macmillan Classics, beautifully produced hardback editions of some of the best-loved stories from the past. Each has a introduction by another author who, in their turn, have been influenced by the great writers of these books.
