Three young boys are left in the charge of a rather piratical babysitter when their parents go out to a business dinner. The pirate, to the boys' delight, uses their house as the site of a great piratical rumbustification, or party. The parents arrive home just in time to join in the fun.


A very amusing and enjoyable read.
