Joyce Lankester Brisley 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. However, she enjoyed writing and illustrating stories most and her immortal creation, the Milly-Molly-Mandy series, set a seal on her success. Miss Brisley died in 1978 aged eighty-two.
