Milly-Molly-Mandy's Family by Joyce Lankester Brisley

Milly-Molly-Mandy lives with her parents, her grandparents and her aunt and uncle in a little white cottage with a thatched roof. She loves to think of ways to surprise them, and they like to surprise her too! In these six lovely stories about the little girl in the pink-and-white frock and her family, read about Milly-Molly-Mandy's adventures as she organizes a party for her grandparents, runs errands for the whole family, steals the show at the village concert and much more. These classic tales are as fresh and lively as when they were first written. Young readers will love discovering Milly-Molly-Mandy for the first time in a dainty, accessible format - and they're sure to want to collect other titles in this charming series.
