Twins, The

The brothers sneak off from summer camp with two of their friends, and end up in adventure after adventure. But they are not alone in the world. Their parents are engaged in nursing and teaching, their grandmother drives a jeep and is known as Grand dragon, Soffia looks after the house, and the result of the boys' experiment to discover whether she really loves them turns out to be positive. Their grandfather has always been away, has scarcely existed; but when he appears it becomes clear to all and sundry that he not only exists, but is hale and very hearty.
