"Michael O'Halloran, or Mickey, as you soon get to call him, is a newsboy, small in size, but with a big, broad, commone-sense, down-to-earth philosophy of life and a ready Irish wit. Mickey - all alone after his mother's death - has just decided to get himself a bull dog for company when he discovers Peaches, a mite of a girl with a crippled back. Mickey straightway undertakes to look after her and to bring her up in the wa y s h e s h o u ld go. He starts his training by announcing to her after the first exhibition of temper on her part: 'Now you cut that out, Miss Peaches, right off! I wouldn't take no tantrums from a dog, and I won't from you'. Mickey's discipl in e a nd t e nd er c ar e ultimately result in a new back and a new world for Peaches. Everyone who loves the novels of Gene Stratton-Porter will find many new and heartwarming characters in this humorous and charming love story."
