“It is a tale of two parties of children spending a winter holiday on farms by the side of a great lake under the elbows of mountains.  Every step taken by the children is possible, and everyone is transmuted into romance by deliberate purpose.  Nothing that the children do is beyond the reach of a group provided that parents are sufficiently benevolent, and provided that winter, a frozen lake and mumps connive to perfect adventure.”
