Aunt Matilda and Roger are staying at Lindon-on-Sea for a month for his health. Aunt Matilda is a grade A fusspot, and Roger’s life is constricted and dull in the extreme. Then Roger meets a group of children and their ponies, Miss Rhoda Belton and Wilderney Bay. “Fancy turning a perfectly good boy into a Ghastly Suburban Figure. Something ought to be done about it,” says Miss Rhoda. So they do something about it, and also about the threat by Miss Rhoda’s landlord to throw her out.
