Written by Dorothy Edwards
Illustrated by Shirley Hughes
Part of the My Naughty Little Sister SeriesWrite A Review
Dorothy Edwards’ stories about this mischievous yet loveable girl have delighted children for over 50 years. She scares kitties by trying to cut off their tails, bites Father Christmas’ hand and steals all the sweets in the house. The stories are cheeky, touching and funny and utterly timeless so that each new generation of children can enjoy just as much as they were enjoyed many years ago.
This title and its sister titles have just been given a makeover with fabulous new covers – click here to see them all.
My naughty little sister is stubborn and greedy and full of mischief. She tries to cut off the cat's tail and eats all the trifle at Harry's party! How much bother can one little sister be?
- 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
