How should the boys employ their time if they are bored to death with their lessons and their school holidays are still far off? Several true friends and a little bit of imagination — and a dull fence whitewashing turns into an entertainment which will bring a lot of boys’ treasures; the game of pirates and robbers will allow to feel free-and-easy life though it will make their grown-ups worry a great deal; and the night visit to the graveyard will make them heroes of the whole town. True, they should not be scared to meet the chimerical ghosts and cruel filthy thieves, but display nobility even when harsh punishment is inevitable. But these are trivial matters if real treasures and life full of adventures are waiting for you.
