FOR THE GOOD YOUNG PERSON.
"Inchfallen," by E. Everett Green; Ward, Lock, & Co., Melbourne. (E. S. Wigg and Son, Adelaide).— This tale for young people is developed on lines which were
popular a score of years ago—young and misguided stepmothers, unruly children, nursing babies, gipsys, family reconcilia- tions, and the like. It is doubtful if it will be equally favoured by the modern child, who has become used to a more invigorat- ing but not the less wholesome literary diet, and the moral is a shade too obvious to be entirely pleading to critics in their early teens. Still, the book has attractive features—plenty of incident, a little pathos and excitement, and a "happy ending;" and it may win the approval of little girls who have been brought up on old-fashioned and conventional lines, and who have an unfulfilled hankering for mild adventure.
