A reading of Jumping Beans by Janet Pates, a New Zealand children's author
The Higginbottom boys were horrible children. Everywhere that Henry, Harvey and Horace went, trouble popped up like toast out of a toaster. They terrified the neighbour’s cats, teased old ladies, and tormented young Benjie, the boy next door. Because they were triplets , they thought they were special. Everyone else in the street thought they were perfect pests and said, “something should be done about those horrible Higginbottom boys!” Old Mrs. Mitch was a round little lady. She wore a squashy, black hat held in place by two long hat pins which went under the bun of white hair on top of her head. The higginbottom boys said the pins went through her brain. They said she must be a witch.
