This is a story of things as they are, a real-life story of a large lively family. The father is a dustman and the mother a washerwoman, but just because they are poor, the children find greater opportunities for adventure and diversion in the course of their ordinary lives. Kate won a scholarship and was faced with awful clothes problems. She also went on a never-to-be-forgotten outing to the sea. Jim became, with all due ceremony, a member of the Gang of the Black Hand. In duty bound to seek adventure, he found himself in a quite thrilling situation from which, luckily, he emerged triumphant. Even Baby William provided his own moment of glory, when he won a prize at the Baby Show.
