The dreaded Great Aunt has invited herself to stay with Nancy and
Peggy just as their friends Dick and Dorothea arrive for the Summer
holiday. Nancy and Peggy have to become Martyrs, wearing dresses
and reading poetry (but breaking out at night), while Dick and
Dorothea become Picts, secret inhabitants of the country who must
never let themselves be seen. It's a desperate gamble to keep
everyone out of trouble - but can it possibly work against the
eagle eyes of the fearsome Great Aunt?
