Having re-read the twelve once more something occurred to me.

Apart from Roger and Bridget, we have no concrete references in the books to the ages of the main characters. Yet it is always assumed that John is the eldest of the Swallows, why?

In my reading I have begun to get the impression that Susan is obviously far more mature than John, and in the latter books the idea that she could be older.
