The Lovereading4Kids comment
The natural forebears of Horrid Henry, the classic stories about My Naughty Little Sister have delighted children for fifty years. This handsome edition, nicely presented in a slip-case, bring together some of the favourites, including my own, My Naughty Little Sister at the Party at which she and Bad Harry team up and raid the table before the birthday tea and Going Fishing when, of course, My Naughty Little Sister gets completely soaked even though that’s exactly what she’s promised not to do…This large format edition is perfect for introducing a new generation to this wonderful character.
The Lovereading comment:
For fifty years, stories about the funny, loveable, mischievous little girl have enchanted children all over the world. The stories are cheeky, touching and funny and the illustrations by Shirley Hughes, pure magic. This special edition also includes an introduction chronicling the life of creator, Dorothy Edwards who is quite rightly considered to be one of the best children’s writers of the 20th Century.
My Naughty Little Sister: Treasury Collection by Dorothy Edwards
This colour treasury special edition contains a selection of best-loved stories and is perfectly complemented by Shirley Hughes' warm and nostalgic illustrations. Includes an introduction chronicling the life of creator, Dorothy Edwards.
In 2002 on the 50th anniversary of My Naughty Little Sister, the Sunday Express said: 'Edwards was one of the best children's writers of the 20th century and her collaboration with illustrator Shirley Hughes was pure magic: the stories are cheeky, touching and funny."
The Scotsman said: "Naughtiness is naughtiness, whatever the generation, and these stories are a delight."
Praise for Shirley Hughes:
"Shirley Hughes is the doyenne of the picture book world. At the mention of her name booksellers beam, librarians wax lyrical and fellow children's authors opine that it is time she retired and gave the rest of them a chance... her secret, over four decades of illustration, has been to stay ahead of the field.'' - TES
