Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mr. and Mrs. Brown were forever having trouble with their numerous and incredibly naughty children . . . until the day Nurse Matilda entered their lives.

First published nearly fifty years ago, Nurse Matilda and its two companion books-Nurse Matilda Goes to Town and Nurse Matilda Goes to Hospital-have charmed readers ever since. Now the inspiration for the major motion picture Nanny McPhee, all three beloved books are available once again in a paperback omnibus edition which features the three complete and unabridged books by Christianna Brand, along with Edward Ardizzone's charming black-and-white illustrations. This movie tie-in edition also features an eight-page color photo insert.

About the Author

Christianna Brand had a number of different occupations, including model, dancer, shop assistant, and governess. Brand herself admitted, "I write for no reason more pretentious than simply to entertain." She died in 1988.

Edward Ardizzone wrote and illustrated about twenty books for children and edited and illustrated two volumes of classic fairy tales over the course of his fifty-year career. He also wrote five books for adults and illustrated more than 150 books by other authors. He died in 1979.
