1926. Mary Louisa Molesworth typified late Victorian writing for girls. Aimed at girls too old for fairies and princesses but too young for Austen and the Brontes, books by Molesworth had their share of amusement, but they also had a good deal of moral instruction. Molesworth's stories followed a formula where the heroine of the story, usually a middle-class girl, would learn the value of helping girls less fortunate than herself. Contents: Floss's Baby; Six Years Old; Plans: The Lost Half-Sovereign; Carrots in Trouble; Carrots All Right Again; A Long Ago Story; The Bewitched Tongue; Sybil; A Journey and Its Ending; Happy and Sad; The Two Funny Little Trots; and Good Endings.
