In the tiny hamlet of Noisy Village, there are three properties, North Farm, Middle Farm and South Farm, and six children live there: Lisa and Lars and Pip and Britta and Anna and Ollie. They play and play, and have fun nearly all the time. It’s wonderful sleeping in the hay, getting dressed up and going to school – and having fun on the way there and back!

In 2021, the books have been newly illustrated by Mini Grey and published by Oxford University Press in the UK. Previous editions were illustrated by Tony Ross.
