The booklet is broken into chapters to assist students to focus on key sections within the text. The booklet incorporates plenty of reading analysis, along with complementary writing exercises. About the text: Seven Little Australians describes the life of a family, in particular its seven children in early outback Australia. The setting is a house nicknamed ‘Misrule’ and ‘Yarrahappini’ the house of their grandparents. Teacher’s Guide: Seven Little Australians is available for free download from project Gutenberg. It must be noted that this novel contains much that could be described as ‘moralistic’ in its tale but this should not deter the teacher from using this text; rather it is a common feature of early Australian writing as an attempt to educate and create virtue in a harsh lawless land.
