When the twins, Joy and Joe, fail in their school work and show other signs of becoming spoiled rich brats, their father sends them to the country to live with a farm family. There they learn to respect their jobs, their neighbors, and ultimately themselves. There's a chicken raising competition, a gingery pony, a bag of old hidden coils. There's success and happiness coming out of hard work and responsibility. Lively reading for 7th to 9th graders.
