Uncle Luigi's Café-where their close friend and conspirator, Anto Falsoni, works part-time for his uncle-serves as the headquarters for all the gang's mischievous and devious planning, which seems to be an everyday occurrence. New and exciting interests influence the boys' lives. They race homemade carts at breakneck speeds on Newry's steep hills. They avidly follow their football team and travel to Dublin and England to watch the competition. And, of course, girls and dating play a new role, and these distractions lead to some unexpected, hilarious, and sometimes embarrassing situations.
Frogs and Snails and Big Dog's Tales takes a nostalgic romp through the 1960s while sharing the daily exploits of Red, Po, and their gang-their love lives, school days, and friends, as well as other unbelievable and hilarious escapades.
