"Anthony's Adventures in Adelaide" is a delightful work written by Anthony Mead. The book is suitable for both children and adults, and is written in a style reminiscent of the happy and... More > gentle times of life in post-war Australia. For modern children, this little book will give them a taste of what life was like for a young schoolboy growing up after the Second World War, experiencing a long train ride and a first aeroplane flight, settling into a different city and a new school, meeting new members of his extended family, and experiencing life on a sheep farm and at a winery. For adults who grew up in the years after World War II, this book will bring back happy memories of their own childhoods, and will present them with a literary style that they are familiar with from their own school days, when the teaching of good grammar and formal writing technique were instilled into every pupil. This book is a delight to read, as well as a glimpse into the gentle and innocent world of a happy child.< Less
