What the Critics said:

This is social history in its most appealing form from one of Australia’s leading exponents writing for young people…. Sandy Campbell, Canberra Times.


All these stories show an understanding of human nature and our follies and foibles… Sandy Campbell.


Don’t miss this one and the opportunity to share ‘what it was like in the olden days’ with the young people in your life … Sandy Campbell.


Beautifully written, and handling timeless themes of grief, lonliness and disillusionment… Sally Harding, Magpies Magazine.


All of Anthony Hill’s stories provide a good read and food for considerable thought. He seems at his very best and certainly most assured in his writing of childhood …  and of chronicling the relationships between children… William Taylor, Viewpoint.
