Rick Afire! is the story of Derek and Diana holidaying at Whitehouse Farm with Pamela and Brian - the twins.  From the very moment the four of them get together, things seem to start happening!  Who is it camping in Gibbert Wood?  What is he doing there ... and why?  A plan of action drawn up in a ruined barn ... an evening chase in pouring rain after an escaped pig ... an unexpected meeting ... foxcubs at play ... and then, just as the skeins are about to be untangled, a hayrick catches fire and their adventures start in real earnest.

Who fired the rick?  That is the question which has to be solved at all costs, for there is trouble abroad!  But solved it is.  Knowing that their friend is badly in need of help the four take on the job.  And who would stop to think when the friend is 'Crusoe' the mystery man, the singer in the wood!
