“I hate him worse than I hate snails, and worms, and slugs, and spiders with hairs down their legs…”

Bride-to-be Mally was an unlikely fugitive from the police. It only happened because she became governess to millionaire Sir George Peterson’s little girl, Barbara. Barbara hated Pinko, her father’s slug-like secretary; and Mally had to agree. But Pinko liked Mally—he wanted her; and if Pinko wants anything he can’t have he is apt to be unpleasant. So when, a few days later, the Mogul’s priceless diamond was found in Mally’s possession, the Slug was delighted. It was his chance. He had made a terrible mistake and now he could blame it on Mally. After all, if she had stolen the gem, they would believe anything of her…
