A short story

The neighbours - well, Mrs 'Nosy-Parker' Costa in particular - said that the trouble really began when the Nicco twins blew up the toolshed at the bottom of their uncle's garden . . .

The short story first appeared in A Book of Boys' Stories By Robert Bateman and Nicholas Marrat, first published in 1964 and reprinted in 1965. Although the book was reprinted frequently this story is only found in the earliest two editions.
More details of the different editions and the remaining six Nicholas Marrat stories can be found on the book's page via the Index.
