The Lovereading4Kids comment

A Piece of Passion from Emily Thomas, Publisher
I've got to say that, without hesitation, everyone here at Hot Key Book sighed in enchantment just looking at the original covers for Joan G. Robinson's MARY-MARY books. What's not to love about a tiny, blonde troublemaker? After all, we've all known one of those - one or two of us may have been such a child ourselves.
The delightful Mary-Mary transcends generations in that she is inquisitive, happy, sad, good, naughty - and she lives in a family of mum, dad and siblings, and her escapades and her preoccupations are timeless. Mary-Mary's adventures offer nostalgia to the parent who reads them aloud to a child, and comfort and identification - and a lot of smiling - to the child who listens. Charmingly preserved in its 'original packaging', Mary-Mary is a gift in so many ways. A book to treasure, cherish and pass on...

Featuring beloved forgotten favourite stories such as Mary-Mary Goes Visiting, Mary-Mary's Handbag, Mary-Mary Goes Away And Mary-Mary Is A Surprise, this anthology follows the misadventures of Mary-Mary (so nicknamed due to her contrary nature!), a little girl who knows rather a lot more than her four older brothers and sisters give her credit for, thank you very much.
