“When Roberta Lennox, "Miss Bobbie" to Dr Wallace and his five sons, comes to stay with them at Parsonage in Sydney, the boys are apprehensive. Their friends tell them that their sisters are always dusting and tiding after them-and besides, they fear Miss Bobbie will not be able to play cricket. Not only does Miss Bobbie learn to play cricket, she soon joins them in chopping down trees, clearing out bird cages and while enthusiastically climbing, tears her best dress and silk stockings. Dr Wallace observes 'the quiet, shy, well behaved little girl had vanished completely: for all the world his charge might have been one of his own mischievous sons dressed up."
