At first Nicky and David’s inability to contribute as agreed to the “house” has unexpected results, including the acquisition by the household of a very oddly-named dachshund and Nicky’s loss of birthday and Christmas money for two years. Jim tries, but his heart isn’t in it: his sport is swimming and he knows it. Susan does better than any of the others in the beginning, but then lazy Nicky hits her stride and discovers that playing before an audience gives her “a feeling of being lit up inside” that her siblings can only find in other things. And in the end Jim, David, Annie, and Pinny even foil a burglar and Nicky wins “a championship which no one of her age has ever won before.” This is a story about family, about goals, about hard work and finding your gifts, which every child (and parent too) should read.
