** spoiler alert ** Horatio is a wealthy man who meets and falls in love with Mousey. They get married and move to the country to live in isolation. Eventually they have a baby they name Sandy. Sandy grows up isolated from the world, learning from his parents. (he is very book smart) The only downside in their lives are monthly visits from Sandy's uncles (Horatio's brothers)Bentley and Bernie. Bentley and Bernie are trying to poison the family so that they can get all of the family's money. Eventually the brothers succeed in poisoning some, but not all of the family. Sandy's parents,Flossie (one of the two servants who are like family) and Sandy's pet chicken Atila. Sandy hires a nurse to care for them but the uncles go to court and insist they go to a hospital for proper care. Sandy takes them to the Walnut House next door, a hospital for distressed people. There are several people in Walnut House although there are things wrong with them, it is nothing that a little bit of time and Sunnie's common sense can't cure. Eventually the inmates band together with Sunnie and Sandy and not only do they beat out the uncles, but they discover that the relatives that put them there are stealing money from the institute. They get their money back from their relatives and turn the institute into a nonprofit place for people who need to recharge from life.
