Summary
"Jock Howison, Jock for short, bought a piece of land near the old castle, not far from Afton Town, and built his own mill. He and Sniffer, a terrier from Skye, very short from end to end, settled down to their trade. But not for long. Into the woods came Tansy, to cook him a meal, and by a series of strange happenings other friendly folk settled on his land and in his house: the Hermit, the Smith and his wife and twins, Bran the Tinker and his wife and eleven little Tinkers. One day Jock rescued a stranger from ruffians, and was invited to court in Chester Town. Here Prince Henry himself, for it was he, made him a lord and gave him the old castle to live in. To the castle, Jock took his many retainers, and they all made themselves at home in the seven towers. Tansy herself took charge of sweeping the mice and beetles from the castle, but it was not until Jock had a pancake thrown in his face that she became Lady Howison."--Page [2] of cover
