Ten-year-old twins, Jane and Linda, who live in Washington, D.C., spend a month with their cousins in an English village. The boys, George and Tom, are 12 and 15, as dissimilar as the twins, and soon all four are caught up in the nearly frantic life of the boys' busy parents: a veterinarian father and a physician mother. The drama of illness and physical crises provides the young with hard work and high interest, and they solve a few personality problems along the way. Tom, with the help of the girls, saves a dog that his father had believed doomed, and gains the status he so badly needs. This one for animal-lovers especially, and for the children of mothers who work in the professions.
