"Ginger Mick was a likeable rogue who, before he answered the call to arms to defend democracy, sold fresh rabbits in the streets of Melbourne. This book tells of his tender love for Rose and his experiences at war in North Africa. The verse is full of humour and pathos and truly captures the spirit of the era.
The Moods of Ginger Mick was written during the early years of World War One when Australian nationalism was at its peak and appeared in the year following Dennis's enormous and immediate success with The Songs of the Sentimental Bloke.”
