*.....summary from wikipedia
Old Crispin, the mushroom gatherer, and
his good wife Chloe had ten children, and
nine of them were bad-tempered. There
was Chad, the youngest and most bad-tempered of the
lot, Hannibal and Quentin the twins, Randall with
the red head, Noah, Ratchett the short-sighted, Nero
the worrit, weeping Biddulph and Knut. The only
good-tempered child was a little girl named Boadicea.
It is well known that a boy usually takes after
his father, and a girl after her mother, and these
children were no exception to the rule, for the boys
all resembled old Crispin, whose temper had been
rather tried, poor man, by the early hours at which
he had to rise, in order to gather the mushrooms when
they were quite new and young. On the other hand,
Boadicea could only have inherited her good-temper
from Chloe, who without doubt was the most good-
tempered dame alive.
