The Swiss Twins

by Lucy Fitch Perkins

Description:  With Father and Fritz going to the high alps all summer to make cheese, responsibility for the family goats falls on Seppi and Leneli, the ten year old twins. They had never even been to the goat pasture in the alps before, but after three days of tagging along while older brother Fritz drove the goats to their pasture in the alps in the morning and led them home at night, they would be on their own. On their first day they had just settled the goats in their pasture, when a fierce storm broke. Gathering the goats to them, they looked on in dismay as the storm triggered an avalanche which blocked their homeward path. How they eventually manage to get home with the goats is a story you won't want to miss!
