A Thoughtless Seven by Amy Le Feuvre.


A very brightly written story of a lively family of boys and girls.—The Church Family Newspaper (1905).

A capital story of child life, in which some good lessons of conduct are inculcated.—The Manchester Courier (1905).

A good, healthy story.—The Baptist Magazine (1905).

The illustrations are real works of art.—The Methodist Times (1905). 

The vivacity that marked "Probable Sons," "Odd," and "Eric's Good News" is not lacking in this new tale by Miss le Feuvre. The "seven" were a merry troop of brethren and sisters, known as Pat, Honey, Taters, Thunder, Lightning, Doodle-doo, and Pixie-a delightful family. "Lightning" became earnestly religious, but lost little of her merriness. Her efforts to induce the others to think of the religions life form the basis of the story. The young people are decidedly frank, referring to sermons as being "rotten," and to the Bible as being "so dry."—Literary World (1898).

 A record of the doings of seven youngsters, brothers and sisters, who spend their summer vacation at the seashore. One of them becomes impressed with the idea that they should not waste their time so entirely, and endeavors to bring the others to her way of thinking.—Fleming H. Revell Company (1897).

"Thunder," "Li" (Lightning), "Taters," "Honey," "Pat," "Pixie," and "DoodIe-doo," make up the rollicking group whose adventures and chatter are here recorded. They are mercurial and insurrectionary to the last degree, and fly in a perpetual "merry-go-round." But a strain of seriousness early begins to develop, leading up into large and noble Christian experience and ambition. The incarnation of religion in daily life where it is "not too good for human nature's daily food," is admirably exemplified and commended.—Watchman (1902).

A big and a bright and interesting family is here set before us. How one of them began to think, and then by acting on her thinking led the others into the right way the little sketch tells.—Pilgrim Teacher (1902).
