“Made from simple sketches of Northern Territory life and centred round little black Bett-Bett, who took refuge with Mrs. Aeneas Gunn(author of ‘We of the Never-Never’), The Little Black Princess of the Never-Never’ is a recognised Australian classic and has delighted readers for over forty years. It is a particular favourite with children.
Bett-Bett appears, stays awhile, learns a little, laughs much, wonders much, and finally goes bush again. Mrs. Gunn gives a charming picture of the little aboriginal’s ways and thought, what she said, and what she feared.”
