Her father, Captain Woolcot, found his vivacious, cheeky daughter impossible – but seven children were really too much for him and most of the time they ran wild at their rambling riverside home, Misrule.
Comments:Seven Little Australians is a charming Australian children’s classic that is just as appealing to adults as it is to children. It is refreshing to read a book that doesn’t moralise the way many children’s books of the era did. This is an entertaining and uniquely Australian story, with a highly unexpected ending, and it deserves a place in everyone’s reading list.
