3 out of 5 stars on GoodReads


A sweet story about a group of siblings growing up at the turn of the century. They run wild through the country hills, chasing errant cows, and tracking down wayward lost dogs. They hate visiting their aunt and grandfather in the city, and sometimes find trouble at school.

The siblings see the world from their child’s point of view, and that gets them into difficulties because they don’t really understand how things work in the real world outside their comfortable family home. They are an unusual bunch of hooligans, with their own squabbles and childish secrets, but they all ultimately band together to protect their family.
I love the detailed writing style that puts you in the middle of each story! The characters are funny and sweet, and they are well-developed. I thought the storyline was hilarious and interesting, but somehow this book didn’t amuse me like I thought it would. I found the characters annoying sometimes, and a couple of the plot lines were boring, but most of it was good.

I enjoyed it, but I wasn’t delighted with every page or anything.
