My Naughty Little Sister Reviews


"- In 2002 on the 50th anniversary of My Naughty Little Sister, the Sunday Express said: 'Edwards was one of the best children's writers of the 20th century and her collaboration with illustrator Shirley Hughes was pure magic: the stories are cheeky, touching and funny.' The Scotsman said: 'Naughtiness is naughtiness, whatever the generation, and these stories are a delight.' - On Shirley Hughes TES wrote: 'Shirley Hughes is the doyenne of the picture book world. At the mention of her name booksellers beam, librarians was lyrical and fellow children's authors opine that it is time she retired and gave the rest of them a chance... her secret, over four decades of illustration, has been to stay ahead of the field.'"

About Dorothy Edwards


Dorothy Edwards Dorothy Edwards dreamt up My Naughty Little Sister whilst on a family holiday in 1950. Dorothy based the character on her younger sister, Phyllis, and went on to write five books about her naughty little sister with wide acclaim. Dorothy became a household name and her stories were read and loved across the globe. She delighted in visiting schools and meeting children, her warmth and obvious enthusiasm held audiences spellbound. She became a fixture of a radio show in the 1950s called Listen with Mother and she also wrote for Playschool and Jackanory. Dorothy died in 1982, aged 68. Shirley Hughes Born in 1927, as a child Shirley Hughes was greatly inspired by visits to Liverpool's Walker Art Gallery. After a year at Liverpool Art School studying costume design, Shirley moved on to the Ruskin School of Drawing in Oxford. She has written and illustrated over 50 books and sold more than eleven million copies. In both 1977 and 2004 she won the Kate Greenaway Medal, and in 1984 she won the Eleanor Farjeon Award. In 1999 she was awarded an OBE for services to children's literature and in 2000 was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. Shirley lives in London.
