Points of Interest:
Jim refers to Honey as his "step-sister".
We find out Honey's real name is "Madeleine G. Wheeler" and she was
named after her mother.

everything Honey promised him he would have in book #1 if he came to live with
The "Bob-Whites of the Glen" are formed in this book, the name coming
from the bird whistle Jim taught Honey and Trixie and Glen Road, the road on
which they live.
