The Young Pretenders


Read by Celine Major

(4.3 stars; 10 reviews)

Delightful and touching this wonderful little story should appeal to both the young and young at heart. Having lived happily with their grandmother in a large country home all of their young lives Babs 5, and Teddy 7, suddenly find themselves uprooted to become the temporary charges of an uncle and rather selfish 'society' aunt as they await the return of their parents from INJA. Babs is fearless and her pranks, her embarrassing frankness and many complaints about what she claims are unnecessary rebukes from the adults in her life will make you smile and sometimes break your heart. Enjoy! - Summary by Celine Major (3 hr 58 min)
