Excerpts

Mother Shaftoe kept track of her boys' ages on her fingers, of which there were six. When she ran short of fingers -- that is, when Dick, the eldest and wisest, was nearing his seventh summer--she gathered the half-brothers together in her shack on the Isle of Dogs, and told them to be gone, and not to come back without bread or money.
