a long time ago, when i was very very small, i borrowed mary-mary stories from burscough library, more than one time. i loved it and i remembered it when trying to name our baby-to-be this past year ....
recently i ordered this book from the library and it came all the way from exeter after a few week, i found i remembered the images very well from all that time ago, and the stories came back to me as i read them, some of them matty and daisy enjoyed too, and pretened they were reading mary-mary when they sat down with picture books!
the book, by joan g robinson is no longer in print, so i cant get hold of our own copy, i hope the library keeps theirs safe. i know it is dated and cute, but the teddy robinson books are much easier to get hold of, i wonder why?
did any one else meet mary-mary in childhood and think she was great?
her schooled brothers and sisters are a pain, getting grumpy over doing homework and chores, and acting like mary-mary is a big pest!
