From the Publisher
Mr. and Mrs. Brown were forever having trouble with their numerous and incredibly naughty children . . . until the day Nurse Matilda entered their lives.
First published nearly fifty years ago, Nurse Matilda and its two companion books-"Nurse Matilda Goes to Town" and "Nurse Matilda Goes to Hospital"-have charmed readers ever since. Now the inspiration for the major motion picture "Nanny McPhee," all three beloved books are available once again in a paperback omnibus edition which features the three complete and unabridged books by Christianna Brand, along with Edward Ardizzone''s charming black-and-white illustrations. This movie tie-in edition also features an eight-page color photo insert.

In 1962 Brand and Ardizzone collaborated on an anthology that featured a story about Nurse Matilda. That was followed by Nurse Matilda Goes to Town and Nurse Matilda Goes to Hospital.
