Her own little cot-bed with the green coverlet on, just inside. And the little square window with the green curtains blowing in the wind, And a yellow pot of nasturtiums on the sill. And the little green chest of drawers with the robin cloth on it. And the little green mirror hanging on the primrose wall, with Milly-Molly-Mandy's own face reflected in it.
And then Milly-Molly-Mandy knew that the little storeroom was to be her very own little bedroom, and she said, "Oh-h-h-h!" in a very hushed voice, as she looked all round her room."

Sugar Plum and I have been reading The Milly-Molly-Mandy Storybook recently and have been so enjoying the quaint, wholesome stories. There are a few books that we read over and over, never growing tired of the tales. This is one of them.
