SEVEN LITTLE AUSTRALIANS Quote #1

How’s this for an opening line?

“Before you fairly start this story I should like to give you just a word of warning.  If you imagine you are going to read of model children, with perhaps; a naughtily inclined one to point a moral, you had better lay down the book immediately … Not one of the seven is really good, for the very excellent reason that Australian children never are.”

– Ethel Turner, Seven Little Australians
