Although Fenn's name appears on the cover, and on the title-page, he does not appear to have written more than one of the stories, and the story that gave its name to the book was not by him. There are several stories that were not signed by an author's name, so we have a mystery there. They were probably just using Fenn's name to sell the book.

Poor Tizzy heard the sharp snap of the tree and turned, to gaze in horror at her brother's fall, uttering a wild shriek as she saw him disappear in the sparkling water; and then in her childlike dread she closed her eyes tightly, stopped her ears, and ran blindly across the meadow, shrieking with all her little might and keeping her eyes fast closed, till she found herself caught up and a shower of questions were put.

They were in vain at first, for the poor child was utterly dazed, hardly recognising the friendly arms which had caught her up, till those arms gave her a good shake.

"Master Ned!--why don't you speak, child?--where's your brother?"

"Oh," shrieked Tizzy, "the water--the water! Tumbled in."

"Oh, my poor darling bairn!" cried Cook, hugging Tizzy to her, as she ran towards, the river.
