Amy Le Feuvre Book Descriptions


Tested! or, The Challange of Adversity by Amy Le Feuvre.


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).


Two Tramps by Amy Le Feuvre.

A healthy, bright tittle book, in which big uncle and little nephew, both brain-tired, tramp through a delightful part of rural England, getting strength in lung and limb, and learning wonderful lessons from nature and nature's God.—The Sunday School Journal, Vol 36 (1904).

A little English boy, who has studied too hard, and his uncle, an overworked London barrister, take a holiday tramp together through the Devonshire country. Rollo is an attractive little fellow, though at times he becomes tiresome because of precocious piety—a family characteristic which in the uncle takes the form of dealing out tracts right and left as they go. Theirs is a congenial companionship, and their quiet adventures are pleasantly told.—The Outlook, Vol 75 (1903).


Us, and Our Charge by Amy Le Feuvre.

A family of orphan boys and girls make things lively for themselves and other people. But amidst all their fun they endeavour to follow their father's last charge to them.—RTS (1921).


Us, and Our Donkey by Amy Le Feuvre.

A rattling tale of the doings of some rectory children who, with a donkey, have many exciting adventures.—RTS (1921).


Us, and Our Empire by Amy Le Feuvre. A sequel to Us, and Our Donkey.

An amusing story describing the various mishaps that befall a family of children who formed an Empire League.—RTS (1921).

Miss Le Feuvre's stories about child life are charmingly well written and suggestive.—Christian Advocate (1902).

Her stories are as bright and interesting and touching as if Juliana Ewing or Laura Richards had written them.—Evangelist (1902).
