An amusing tale of the continuing scout adventures of Pee Wee Harris. The story centers around a "floating island" that Pee Wee finds in the river one morning. A point of land eroded off and fell into a dredger's scow, creating the island. Pee Wee and other scouts claim it as a scout camp and have numerous advdntures as the scow is tossed up and down the river by the tides.
Pee-Wee goes with his mother to spend the summer on a farm, where he meets a girl who is bewailing her fate that there is no society at this obscure retreat. Pee-Wee assures her he will fix everything for her, and proceeds to do so, with his usual success. All readers of the Tom Slade and the Roy Blakeley books are acquainted with Pee-wee Harris. These stories record the true facts concerning his size (what there is of it) and his heroism (such as it is), his voice, his clothes, his appetite, his friends, his enemiesm his victims. Together with the thrilling narrative of how he foiled, baffled, circumvented and triumphed over everything and everybody (except where he failed) and how even when he failed he succeeded. The whole recoded in a series of screams and told with neither muffler nor cut-out.
