Playing Beatie Bow - Ruth Park

This is the Forty-ninth in my one-book-at-a-time bookshelf.

I love a good fantasy, as you may have worked out from my bookshelf, and I particularly like one that is set in a realistic urban environment and this is Australian with an historical twist to boot. Having lived all of my life in Perth my vision of Sydney and a wider Australia was formed by books such as this.

Ms 14 has just finished reading it and comments "it is so nice to have a really Australian classic to read and with a protagonist my age". I couldn't agree more.
