Dad, near Mt White - looking very Southern Man-ish.

Has anyone read any of the Milly-Molly-Mandy books, by Joyce Lankester Brisley? I'm curious because I was basically brought up on them and for some peculiar reason, I've been thinking about them today. :) I loved all the little stories and the pictures. I used to copy the stories; eg the one where Milly-Molly-Mandy gets locked in her bedroom by mistake and she leaves a basket hanging out her window and her family leave little presents in it for her to pull up? That was a particularly fun idea!
Other books I got into when I was a little older (ie seven or eight) were Enid Blyton ones: the Famous Five series, the Secret Seven, Five Find-Outers and Dog... I was obsessed with Enid Blyton in the way I love Jane Austen now - something that is rather embarrassing to admit, when I flick through those books now... I don't think Enid Blyton was ever popular in the States, or at least not with my generation, because most Americans I talk to don't have a clue who she was. Not surprising I suppose, because she was very British!
