1901. The book begins: Where are the children? They can't be far away, replied my wife, looking up from her preparations for supper. Bobbsey was here a moment ago. As soon as my back's turned he's out and away. I haven't seen Merton since he brought his books from school, and I suppose Winnie is upstairs with the Daggetts. I wish my dear, you could keep the children at home more, I said, a little petulantly. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
