The ill nature of the cartoon, for instance, which showed Tish in a pair of khaki trousers on her back under a racing-car was quite uncalled for. Tish did not wear the khaki trousers; she merely took them along in case of emergency.

Overview

The ill nature of the cartoon, for instance, which showed Tish in a pair of khaki trousers on her back under a racing-car was quite uncalled for. Tish did not wear the khaki trousers; she merely took them along in case of emergency. Nor was it true that Tish took Aggie along as a mechanician and brutally pushed her off the car because she was not pumping enough oil. The fact was that Aggie sneezed on a curve and fell out of the car, and would no doubt have been killed had she not been thrown into a pile of sand. It was in early September that Eliza Bailey, my cousin, decided to go to London, ostensibly for a rest, but really to get some cretonne at Liberty's. Eliza wrote me at Lake Penzance asking me to go to Morris Valley and look after Bettina. . . .

Tish was published in 1917. It is a laugh out loud story of three middle aged, turn of the century ladies who have some fun adventures. Tish is way ahead of her time and feels that she can do anything 'especially with the help of a little blackberry cordial'. If you enjoy a clean, fun read, this book is highly recommended.

I read this book 60 years ago and it still made me laugh today. This version is poorly edited or unedited. Tish and her two companion middle-agers are so much fun and their repartee is hilarious at times. The obligatory romance in each story is dated but the three ladies are priceless.
