About this title:

Synopsis: This is the story of the four Cares children who lived adventurous lives, and whose adventures are as vividly pictured here as the children themselves. They grew up outside of Charlottesville, Massachusetts, in the early 1900's, when there were runaway horses, when lightning came down chimneys, when there were bats in the piazza awnings and rats to frighten the cook -- and when a miracle could happen any time. Theodore and Jane and Hubert and Edie had to change their clothes for dinner every night, but this was the custom in those days. No modern child in blue jeans has as much freedom to explore, roam, and fight as they did. And they used their freedom to deal with water, fire, tall trees, barn roofs, bad men, and -- of course -- each other. Life was not really dangerous: these four made it so. Young people today will envy the Cares children, whose soaring imaginations and limitless energies could turn the most humdrum occasion into something unexpected and never-to-be-forgotten. In a book as fresh and timeless as the early mornings when the Cares's day began, Mrs. Spykman -- a gifted new writer -- has created memorable characters. Readers young and old will find themselves laughing aloud at times, tense with suspense or anticipation at others, but always deeply absorbed till the last page has been reluctantly turned. What the reviewers have said: "A charming family story about the four children in a well-staffed but motherless household in the year 1907. They have some hair-raising adventures. Some of it is very funny. Much of it is exciting, and occasionally it is sad. It all rings absolutely true." -- Publisher's Weekly -- "Here is a new family as warm as Eleanor Estes's Moffats, as full of reasonable ingenuity as the Swallows and the Amazons, and as painfully individualistic as Enid Bagnold's Alice, Thomas, and Jane. A book of character for family reading by a new and perceptive writer." -- Saturday Review --
