Seven Litlte Australians - Ethel Turner

An Australian children's story that seems to have survived the test of time, as it is still being published now.

Basically the kids depicted here are ordinary kids, not adventure heroes, not mouthpieces for adults to moralise through.

Their lives have tragedy, fun, family. The also are dealing with all the other elements of society as real people.
