|Once when I was reading through - I wrote a list of every
book mentioned in the series .... I *think* I might have the list but I'm
not a 100 % sure, It was when I was still living at home and at school, so
10+ years ago. I do remember it went over more than one sheet (front and
back) and I wasn't going too badly at reading some of them! I have a copy
of 'Queechy' for example. Personally, I love the sound of the carved
cartoon and ALOE |
I shall have a look for it.
I always wonderd what on earth a book calle "Queechy" could be about. Is it a name? Or a place? Or what?
Queechy is indeed the name of a place - Queechy Run is 'a little village - a very little villate - about half a mile from Mr Ringgan's house.' If you wish to read Queechy by Elizabeth Wetherell (Susan Warner), you can do so here.

|In Camp, Miss Nalder asks if anyone has read "The Carved Cartoon", declaring it "a delightful story - based on Grinling Gibbon's [C17th English woodcarver] life. It gives a vivid picture of the Great Plague and of the Fire of London." She offers to send home for it and several girls jump at this - Joey was quite overcome and "slipped into a happy dream" at the thought of historical reading and started planning her own historical story. A rather enthusiastic response to a rather uninspiring recommendation - perhaps historical tales were popular in general.|
Actually after I read that I always wanted to read it! I think the title attracted me.
|I'll confess to buying "Bevis -the Story of a Boy" because I knew it had been mentioned in a CS. I think it was Sybil reading it in "Rescue"? I didn't enjoy it all that much, but as it was only 50c in an op shop along the Great Ocean Road it doesn't matter|
Whereas I'm on the lookout for that because it was Arthur Ransmoe's favourite book as a child
