Scotch Twins Jean, Jock, their father, and the dog all live in a "wee housie" in rural Scotland. They have no mother so it is up to Jean to take care of the house and everyone in it. However, she still has plenty of time left to play, and since she is "as good as a boy" (as Jock says), play she does. The main story is the tale of how the Twins, together with their friends Cam and Roger, work to foil the thievery of a corrupt game keeper by use of their splendid imaginations. A satisfying story with loveable people. Illustrated with creative and humorous drawings by the author.  The 10th book in the twins series.
