What happens when a group of 10-year-old boys try to have as much fun as they can get away with given the strict confines of a Catholic school in the fifties?

They form a club, of course. Three members make up the original "Beboli Boys". Over the next four years the organization grows to over a hundred members, including originally forbidden Beboli Girls. Jimmy Mahoney recalls in vivid detail how his group of Beboli Boys pulled altar boy and classroom pranks and devised money-making schemes that somehow were always more funny than harmful. Mahoney's writing reminds us of a time when children had both more freedom and responsibility and his stories celebrate the unabashed, humorous cleverness of youth.
