Milly-Molly-Mandy is a very quaint storybook. I had trouble with her calling her parents Muvver and Favver. Having read Just William! I kept expecting something to go terribly awry, but it never did. I read about this in another book. I wish I could remember where the reference came from. It took a long time for me to get the book. It was really nice bedtime reading. Nothing really happens. Very simple and sweet. The illustrations by the author are delightful. ( )

In every chapter of this brilliant book is basically a new story. Sometimes Milly-Molly-Mandy would get a new dress, or make a new friend, or anything like that. I think that J. Brisley is a good author, but I do say - I found some peculiar mistakes in it..But, that's the publisher's fault, isn't it? And anyway, I was still able to follow the story!

This book was quite funny, as a matter of fact, and sometimes it even made me read a certain paragraph or two to my family. And even then, they would laugh too - not just me, who'll even giggle at my own joke!

This book is probably recommended for six- or seven-year-old children to ten- or eleven-year-olds. I think the words that J. Brisley wrote were just right, so that nearly everyone will be happy to read it, and when reading it will chuckle and giggle out loud! ( )

I remember my mom reading this to me and my sister when we were little, and I still have good memories of it! ( )

I loved this book when I was a child, mostly because I shared a name in common with Milly-Molly-Mandy. I remember sitting on m bed with the book and vowing to read every single story between it's covers, a task that seemed nearly impossible to my 5 year old mind. I stilll remember the stories in the book. I think that all children should have the pleasure of enjoying the lively, love-able Milly-Molly-Mandy. ( )
