In fact, he shows no interest in her vacation plans at all. But when he is invited to the seashore with Annie Pat and her family he is delighted. Surprisingly enough, the Children's Theater has a special attraction for Eddie, because he likes to print tickets and paint scenery. Annie Pat gives up on acting as a career but becomes interested in painting for a while. Lacking any real paints, she uses jams, in three flavors, and tooth paste, in three colors.

Both children have a wonderful summer, and thousands of others will have a wonderful time reading this book. In it Miss Haywood, with ease and grace, exhibits once more her extraordinary gift of invention, which seems to flow forth like the sparkling water from a clear spring.
