TEENS: A STORY OF AUSTRALIAN SCHOOLGIRLS was the first fiction title to be published by Angus and Robertson and was released in 1897.
Illustrated with black and white drawings, it tells the story of 13-year-old year Lennie Leighton, the eldest of four sisters, all of whom wait eagerly every day to hear of their big sister’s adventures at school. Reminiscent of the beloved classic LITTLE WOMEN, TEENS is a charming story that centres around Lennie’s loving family and close bond with her best friend Mabel.
This commemorative edition contains a biography of the author by renowned children’s literature academic Dr Robyn Sheahan-Bright. It will be a welcome addition to the A & R Classics series that showcases the early publishing of one of Australia’s most respected and renowned publishing houses.
