THE SECRET FARMYARD

A story of life in a medium sized city has backyard and neighborhood appeal as it tells how two boys achieve a finer sense of social and personal responsibility through their various escapades. Joey Burness, whose father teaches, has just come to Bridgeport where their landlord's conditions prevent Joey from keeping animals. With help and ingenuity he manages to raise chickens in secret, have a vegetable garden and even to start taking care of the landlord's collie, which opens a way for friendship. Though Tony, an Italian boy, proves a temporary sore spot, it is through the collie that the boys make friends and look forward together to a new batch of puppies.
