"Let's make a bay window for the front," suggested Bobby, dragging up a rocking chair and tumbling his younger brother, Twaddles, out of the way.

"How do you make a bay window?" demanded Twaddles, whom no amount of pushing out of the way could subdue for long; he simply came in again.

"This way," said Bobby.

He tipped the rocking chair over on its side and turned the curved back so that it fenced in a space between two straight chairs. Looking through the carved rounds, if you had a very good imagination, it really did seem something like a bay window.

Dot, who was the doll Geraldine's mother, clutched her closely, while Meg quickly picked up her doll from the couch where she had laid her.

"There won't anything hurt 'em," protested Bobby earnestly. "Go on, put 'em in please, Meg."

Meg seldom could resist anything Bobby asked of her, and Dot was always ready to follow her older sister's lead... Continue reading book >>
