Meet Milly-Molly-Mandy in this beautiful Macmillan Classics edition.
Joyce Lankester Brisley was born in 1896 and studied art at Lambeth Art School. The first Milly-Molly-Mandy stories were published in 1925 in the Christian Science Monitor, and a first collection of these stories was published in book form in 1928. An accomplished artist as well as a writer, she designed posters and book jackets and also illustrated the work of other authors. Joyce Lankester Brisley died in 1978, but Milly-Molly-Mandy's popularity lives on.
