B&w illustrations. "Darkie - his real name was John, but everyone called him Darkie - was unhappy at home. Whatever his brother did was always right: whatever Darkie did was always wrong. The climax came when he was about eleven, and he gave his brother some rubber wings for his birthday and tried to teach him to swim. But George got into difficulties and was nearly drowned: and though Darkie rescued him with courage and resource, he was severely punished for encouraging George to enter the water in the first place. So Darkie decided to run away, and, accompanied by his dog Bingo, he set out on his adventures. By great good chance he fell in with some delightful travelling companions; and there followed an exciting and entertaining game of hide-and-seek in which Darkie and Co. sought to dodge the hue and cry raised by his disappearance from home. This fresh and original story is written with great zest and a lively sense of humour. and is crowded with a host of quaint and endearing characters. No one who has read it will easily forget people like Mr Popps the travelling showman, Pegg Boogrum the one- legged tramp, Mr Slurk the reporter, or Captain Hancock with his sailing tricycle."
