"MUGWUMP" - Scan produced NOTHING. "MUG" - plenty of tea drunk from a MUG. If that word is in any of those twelve books, I would love to hear about that, as it would mean that I have a TYPO and did not spell it right, so my search would not have found it. Tried "WUMP" and again, nothing.

Thanks for asking me to run this search. Glad my collection of TXT files can be of good use.

Typing them in was a Labour of Love, a delightful re-visit with my childhood playmates, who now, some 75 years later, help me to stay young as I return to those adventures of my childhood.

I was easily hooked. First of all, there was a MAP in the front, a map frequently referenced until memorized. Then there were those first three words:

"Roger, aged seven,..."

My Dad's name was ROGER, so that was familiar. I was also SEVEN years old, and quickly identified with Roger. He was my personal representative. I was him, or, he was me - we did things together. I was able to be a part of the group.

They were Good Friends to grow up with. I am grateful they were there for me.
