9780747576754: Nurse Matilda

The Brown children are terribly terribly naughty - unbelievably naughty. All the nannies and nursery-maids and governesses in the directory are called upon to implement some kind of order in the house but, inevitably, they are soon driven to distraction and of course leave having had absolutely no positive effect on the children's indefatigable resource of mischief and anti-social conduct - all much to Mr and Mrs Brown's horror and dismay. But apparently there is one last resort 'What you need is Nurse Matilda.' This is a gem of a book with episode after episode of relentless mischief and vast amounts of humour. Ardizzone's illustrations are stunning throughout.

About the Author:

Christianna Brand was born in 1909. As a child she lived with her cousin, Edward Ardizzone's, family. Christianna had many jobs until finally in 1941 her first crime novel Death in High Heels was published, which was followed by successful crime novels and historical romance as well as children's books. She died 1988. Edward Ardizzone was born in 1900. He illustrated for the Radio Times, exhibited his art in prestigious galleries and in 1936 Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain was published - the first of the 'Tim' books. In 1956 Tim All Alone was the first book to win the Kate Greenaway Award. In 1962 Christianna and Edward collaborated on an anthology of stories called Naughty Children, which featured a tale about Nurse Matilda followed by Nurse Matilda Goes to Town (in 1966) and Nurse Matilda Goes to Hospital (in 1973).

Review:

'His humourous, avuncular style was enormously adaptable Just as some musicians are endowed with perfect pitch, he [Ardizzone] had a perfect sense of tone and with a few lines dashed on with his dip-and-scratch pen could tell you exactly the distance from foreground to background he wanted you to see. 'It was Ardizzone who first gave me the idea that a picture is like a theatre You open it and up goes the curtain. But this is a very intimate theatre, which the audience can return to again and again.' Shirley Hughes, Guardian
