Pat of Silver Bush, L.M. Montgomery, Sydney: Angus & Robertson, 1937

But really, what a thing to be known for.

It’s that kind of book. though. Positively indecent, my dear.

The first sentence is:

‘Oh, oh, and I think I’ll soon have to be doing some rooting in the parsley bed,’ said Judy Plum, as she began to cut Winnie’s red crepe dress into strips suitable for ‘hooking’.

So you can guess how Pat’s bush got so famous, silver or no.
