My naughty little sister causes mischief wherever she goes. If she is left with Bad Harry they make a mess with a lovely sponge trifle. She won't even make friends with Father Christmas but having a wobbly tooth probably doesn't help - when will it ever come out?About the Author:
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 Read 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.
