WHEN Diana and Derek Longmore came to Whitehouse Farm in England to be guests of Pamela and Brian Sanville, the four children looked forward to gay summer holidays. The arrival of Bill Robinson, a' 'grown up,'' made them a bit doubtful, but they soon found him to be the source of most of their fun.

BILL, nicknamed "Crusoe," wanted to build a small hut in the country in which to rest and do some writing, and Pamela, Brian, Diana, and Derek fell to helping with much enthusiasm. The cabin for Crusoe was the cause of tremendous excitement—a trip to a lumber yard, the problem of renting the land from a disagreeable farmer, guarding the site, even at night, and the mystery of the missing tools. The most wonderful part of all, however, was becoming acquainted with a band of real gypsies. It was their new Romany friend, Patch Cooper, who found the ideal solution to all problems involved in building Crusoe's cabin.

DAVID SEVERN has packed thrills and adventure into this story, and has drawn from his own English background to provide a charming setting. Boys and girls alike will find it tops in enjoyment.
