How would you like to live in an exciting tree house, with a window in its trunk, bracken-fronds and rugs for beds, its front-door entered by swinging down a rope in the middle of the tree?
Peter and Susan run away from their aunt and make their home in an enormous hollow tree they find in the heart of the wood. How they furnish it, find a washing-pool and manage to arrange for food supplies makes a thrilling story.
