Excerpt provided by Syndetics

Before you fairly start this story I should like to give you just a word of warning. If you imagine you are going to read of model children, with perhaps; a naughtily inclined one to point a moral, you had better lay down the book immediately and betake yourself to 'Sandford and Merton' or similar standard juvenile works. Not one of the seven is really good, For the very excellent reason that Australian children never are. In England, and America, and Africa, and Asia, The little folks may be paragons of virtue, I know little about them.
