When her older brother Ted insists she can't do anything important because she is a girl, 11-year-old Edie Cares declares war on men and boys. At the same time she vows to "do good" for the sake of her beloved stepmother, Madam. A hilarious and hair-raising series of adventures ensues, including arrest at a woman suffrage march, an escaped boa constrictor on a train, an alligator hunt, and a magic stone.
This is the third novel in the series about the Cares family, following The Wild Angel. This time the protagonist is Edie, now a feisty ten-year-old with teenage siblings who think they have all the answers. Papa and Madam (the children's stepmother) have gone to France, leaving the children in the care of servants at Aunt Louise's summer house on the beach. The adventures begin on the trip to the beach, and continue all summer, culminating with a full-fledged hurricane and the search for a jewel thief. As in the previous books, children and adults inhabit very different worlds.
