The year is 1896. John C. "Skippy" Bedelle is 15 years old, a perpetual daydreamer, and a classmate of The Tennessee Shad and other familiar characters at the Lawrenceville prep school. Skippy has little talent in Latin or French, but his mind runs a mile a minute. His ambition is to become an overnight millionaire by selling the rights to one of his many practical inventions (among them Bedelle's Mosquito-Proof Socks, whose chemical coating emits an eye-watering stench). Despite claiming to disdain the fair sex, in the course of a single year Skippy has chaste but hopeful relationships with a string of girlfriends, among them a social butterfly, a reformer, a flirt, and a deceitful "older woman" of 25.

As in all the Lawrenceville stories, school life has less to do with classwork than with practical jokes, sports, dances, and the consumption in quantity of pancakes, chocolate eclairs, and fruit-and-ice cream "jiggers."
