Van de Hulst, W.G.
Tom and Davy are missing. They should be in class but they are not. The village policeman has a mystery for Mrs. Janssen’s big pan is missing too. And so is Farmer Cooper’s ‘KEEP OUT’ sign. When Tom and Davy finally show up, flushed and dirty, they refused to tell their teacher where they have been. It’s a secret so she simply asks them, “Is it a beautiful or a dark secret?” That’s a question only the boys can answer.
