Five years after the success of The Sentimental Bloke, Dennis continued the tale of Rose, the girl Ginger Mick left behind. Inclined to recklessness and ‘like to come to ‘arm’ the Bloke appoints himself chief rescuer – like some ‘tin knight of old’ and later, bumbling match-maker. But Doreen is there, of course, to save the day. An Australian classic. With delicate black and white illustrations and a glossary of the slang of the times.
