Mr and Mrs Brown are always having great difficulty with their numerous and incredibly naughty children. They try all the agencies but the nurses, governesses and nannies never stay long with the Brown children. 'The person you want is Nurse Matilda,' they are told.
And when Nurse Matilda does arrive very strange things begin to happen.
Brought together in one volume are the three remarkable tales of Nurse Matilda - Nurse Matilda, Nurse Matilda Goes to Town and Nurse Matilda Goes to Hospital. Having delighted generations of readers since their first publication in the sixties, the books have now formed the inspiration for the newly-released and fabulous Nanny McPhee, written and adapted for the big screen by Emma Thompson who stars as Nanny McPhee opposite Colin Firth as Mr Brown.
This collection of stories from Christianna Brand is sure to charm and entertain all readers new and old.
