Mr and Mrs Brown have a huge family of incredibly naughty children. They had once been fortunate enough to acquire the services of Nurse Matilda, who had transformed the children into models of good behaviour. But now the children have slipped back into their wicked ways: Tora has put glue in the sandwiches; Emma has made a chocolate cake out of mud; David has put a toad in the milk jug; and Tim is tying Nanny's shoelaces to her chair! Their stay in London with their Great Aunt Adelaide seems set for disaster - until the arrival of Nurse Matilda.

About Christianna Brand

Christianna Brand was born in 1909. As a child she lived with the family of her cousin, Edward Ardizzone. 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 in 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).
