Evans, London, 1951, illus Violet Morgan, 239 pp.
The summer holiday soon livens up once the children find out that some crooks are using a local folly for dog rustling, and making free with the ponies to do it. Once the crooks are disturbed they flee, and all seems to quieten down until they go on to a caravan trip to visit a castle Vicky has inherited. Once they’re there, the children and Uncle Percy are thrown into the midst of the criminal gang and have to exercise all their ingenuity to escape.
