    Seven Little Australians is the first of the Woolcot Family series by Australian novelist Ethel Turner. Set in the late 19th century, it details a few months in the lives of Captain John Woolcot, his young (20 years old) wife Esther and their family at their house, Misrule, up the Parramatta River. There were six children he had by his first, now dead, wife: Meg(Marguerite), 16, Pip (Phillip), 14, Judy (Helen), 13, Nellie, 10, Bunty, 6, and Baby, 4, and his and Esthers baby, the General (Francis). The fact that these were not the children of a Minister, like those perfect March girls of Louisa Alcotts, may well account for their mischievousness: they had a tendency to get into trouble, even if their hearts were essentially good. Nor was Captain Woolcot the perfect father. This novel has a very Aussie feel and is both funny and sad. Readers will look forward to the next instalment, The Family at Misrule.
