Here you can meet Annie Owen the Rent, No-Good-Boyo, Mr McAndrew, the Public Speaker, Mr Thomas the Water Board, the author and his family and boyhood friends. In forty not entirely true stories you can enjoy their adventures, laugh at their escapades as they travel through a time more innocent than now.
