'His humourous, avuncular style was enormously adaptable Just as some musicians are endowed with perfect pitch, he [Ardizzone] had a perfect sense of tone and with a few lines dashed on with his dip-and-scratch pen could tell you exactly the distance from foreground to background he wanted you to see. 'It was Ardizzone who first gave me the idea that a picture is like a theatre You open it and up goes the curtain. But this is a very intimate theatre, which the audience can return to again and again.' Shirley Hughes, GuardianVom Verlag:
The Brown children are terribly terribly naughty - unbelievably naughty. All the nannies and nursery-maids and governesses in the directory are called upon to implement some kind of order in the house but, inevitably, they are soon driven to distraction and of course leave having had absolutely no positive effect on the children's indefatigable resource of mischief and anti-social conduct - all much to Mr and Mrs Brown's horror and dismay. But apparently there is one last resort 'What you need is Nurse Matilda.' This is a gem of a book with episode after episode of relentless mischief and vast amounts of humour. Ardizzone's illustrations are stunning throughout.
