Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose are best friends who live in the town of Green Lawn, Connecticut. One day, they go off on a picnic to Shaw Island. When rain clouds suddenly appear, they try to find some shelter under one of the many big rocks there. Josh then finds a hundred dollar bill. When the three turn it in to Officer Fallon, they find that it is a counterfeit. Can they catch the criminals?
The criminals make counterfeit money. There is also animal neglect on their part. This is all shown as wrong, however.
God is not mentioned in this book, nor is any religion or spiritual content.
The dog, later named Pal, was probably not fed very well and things like that. It's only implied, though.
