Dorothy Edwards is most famous for creating the My Naughty Little Sister character, which she dreamt up to keep her daughter quiet while on a family holiday in 1950. She went on to write five books about her naughty little sister with wide acclaim. Shirley Hughes has written and illustrated more than 200 books. Her many awards include the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Eleanor Farjeon Award.Review:
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.’
