Getting children right is often one of a writer’s greatest challenges. It can be a fine line to walk between precocious and obnoxious, adorable and irritating, and wise-beyond-their-years and simply unrealistic. But Georgette Heyer gets it right with her child characters, many of whom positively steal the show — and the reader’s heart — every time they take the stage.
But which is your favourite?
