Bunchy
  • Bunchy

  • Little Bunchy lives all alone with her grandmother in a cottage in the country. It's quite a long walk to the village and Bunchy is too young for school yet so she has no one to play with. But Bunchy is never lonely because she has her own very special friends - the pastry girl, the Scribbles family, the naughty clothes-peg people and the little wooden sailor-doll.
    Set in a by-gone era, here are ten stories written with warmth and affection, by the author of Milly-Molly-Mandy.

Joyce Lankester Brisley (1896 - 1978) wrote and drew books from an early age; she had her first fairy story published in a children's paper at the age of thirteen. She studied at art school and, when she was twenty, had pictures hung in the Royal Academy. The Milly-Molly-Mandy series became her most well-loved and famous creation.
