Jingo Hawks is out of luck when Mrs. Daggatt from the orphan house hires him out as a chimney sweep to the awful General Dirty-Face Scurlock. But it’s gypsy luck that puts Jingo into the right chimney and then into the care of the mysterious Mr. Peacock, who claims to know Jingo’s scoundrel father. Together they set out on a treasure hunt for buried gold. But they are not alone. Those nasty gold diggers Mrs. Daggatt and General Scurlock are hot on their trail.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator Charles Carroll takes listeners on a spirited journey as feisty Jingo joins a band of gypsies, and listeners learn Romani words and lore. Carroll also beautifully renders the kindness of the gypsies when they first encounter a dispirited Jingo who is down on his luck. Then Mr. Peacock-Hemlock-Jones—who sounds much like his colorful name, thanks to Carroll's skill at creating accents—takes Jingo under his wing. The moving conclusion reveals much about Jingo’s elusive father. A fun historical adventure story both entertains and educates.”
