AbstractHistoryArchive Description

''Carcoola Holiday' has all the sparkling humor of Miss Handford's previous books for girls. As a counter to the feminine activities of Hope, and the twins Ann-Anne and Dimity, the two boys Rory and Jonesy, familiar figures to readers of the Carcoola books, provide their own quota of nuisance-creating. This time they decide to write a radio serial. The result may easily be imagined.

'A new and welcome addition to the Carcoola characters is a New Australian girl, Zelie. The gradual acceptance of the Australian way of life by this Czech girl is described by the authoress with sympathy and sincerity.

'For young readers who crave excitement, there plenty of that type of action to be expected on an Australian sheep station.'
