‘Once upon a time there was a huge family of children; and they were terribly, terribly naughty…….’
So begins Nurse Matilda , the first of three books by the celebrated team of Chistianna Brand and illustrator Edward Ardizzone about the unusual, no-nonsense nanny who uses magic to rein in the mischievous children in her charge – and changes their lives forever.
When first published more than forty years ago, Nurse Matilda and its two companion books Nurse Matilda Goes to Town and Nurse Matilda Goes to Hospital charmed readers of all ages. Now the original stories are compiled here in their entirety for a whole new generation to discover and love.
