Ethel Turner - 3 novels - Miss Bobbie & Mother's Little Girl & The Cub (Bundle 1)

£14.99

Product description

Ethel Turner (25 January 1873 – 8 April 1958) was an English-born Australian novelist and children's literature writer.

-- Miss Bobbie --
Miss Bobbie, a girl like no other.

When her father remarries, she is sent to live with family friends, the doctor and his five boisterous boys. Initially a shy, sheltered girl, she learns 'boy things', like cricket, tree climbing, and handling mice.

Bobbie learns she has a temper, and sways between trying to be very good and just exploding when she gets annoyed. There are lots of mischievous times.

The book has a dust jacket which is clipped and shows some shelf wear and rubbing with a few tiny tears. There is 'File Copy' label affixed to the front of the dust jacket. The frontispiece page is loose. There is an 'Archive Copy' stamp on the full title page. There is very light tanning to the front and rear free end papers. Internally, the pages are clean and the binding is tight.

-- Mother's Little Girl --
The Wallers were a poor family, and Mr Waller was actually out of work when his sixth little one arrived. In their plight, the Wallers allowed their childless, though wealthy relation, Alice, to adopt the new baby in exchange for one hundred pounds.

The book has a dust jacket which is clipped. The dust jacket shows some signs of shelf and rubbing and has several minor tears. There is a publisher's File Copy label affixed to the front of the dust jacket. Internally, the pages are clean and the binding is tight.

-- The Cub --
A vividly related and delightful story set in the days of the first World War. Brigid (whose home is in Australia) is at finishing school in Belgium when that country is over-run by the Germans. She escapes from Belgium and then the fun begins on the voyage to Australia on the Orion, when she becomes acquainted with the young man nicknamed "The Cub", who is also voyaging home. And what a charming and sparkling story evolves.

The book has a dust jacket which is not clipped and shows some signs of shelf wear and rubbing. There is a 'Production Dept. File Copy' stamp on the front free end paper. There is an 'Archive Copy' stamp on the full title page. There is very light tanning to the front and rear free end papers. Internally, the pages are clean and the binding is tight.
