The Buckinghams

This series centres around the two Buckingham children, Juliet and Simon, and their friend Charles Renislau.

In the first book, 'The Master of Maryknoll' Charles runs away from a very unhappy home and encounters the Buckinghams at home, debating on how to spend their holiday. The youngsters team up to explore Shropshire and cycle to Ludlow.
