The Young Visiters (also known as Mister Salteena's Plan) is a book by English writer Daisy Ashford, first published in 1919. It was written by the author when she was just nine years old and part of the appeal of the book comes from it's juvenile grammar and spelling. The story revolves around 42 year old Alfred Salteena, and 17 year old Ethel Monticue, and the formers desire to become a 'gentleman'. After going to stay with a friend, Bernard Clark, Alfred introduces him to an Earl who agrees to assist him in his desires. Meanwhile, romance is blossoming between Ethel and Bernard. The book proved very popular and was reprinted eighteen times in its first year alone. J. M. Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan, agreed to write a preface. After its publication, rumours soon started that the book was in fact an elaborate literary hoax, and that it had been written by J. M. Barrie himself.

This book has 49 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1919.
