Joyce Lankester Brisley was born in England in 1896. In her lifetime she wrote and illustrated six collections of stories about Milly-Molly-Mandy, an a number of other books for children. She died in 1978.From Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3-Sweet, old-fashioned stories about a little girl and her adventures in her small English town. The 20 selections were culled from 6 books published between 1929 and 1967. Each chapter stands on its own, making this a good choice for reading aloud. However, keep in mind that these simple stories were written in a different time and place. For example, in one chapter, Milly-Molly-Mandy and her friend, Billy Blunt, do good deeds to counter a gang of mischievous boys in the town. The misdeeds of the latter include knocking hats off the heads of passersby and leaving gates open. Eventually, they come around and join up with Milly and Billy's group. Although some readers might consider the stories too bland and mundane, Brisley's characters are consistent and likable. Endpapers have a map of Milly-Molly-Mandy's village. Each chapter has one full-page and several smaller black-and-white drawings, reproduced from the originals. A wholesome choice, particularly for children who have outgrown beginner readers.
