All the children who read and loved The Hat Tub Tale will be delighted to continue the story of the delightful characters, Nip and Tuck. This time they leave Sandy Cove, Digby Neck on the Bay of Fundy, and their fishing and salads, and land in the American desert. Nip, in difficulties as usual, is rescued, as usual, by the faithful, law-abiding Tuck. They have wonderful adventures with an airplane, a family of eagles and Indians. The wanderers return happily to their fishing and salads, much to their own -- and the children's -- delight.
