Pepanek, the eldest child of the Bartos family who own a farm in the village of Behlin, is a real rascal who manages to vex the whole village with his pranks. He has a good heart, however. He is the only true friend of Venousek Klecanek, the sick child of a poor woman. Pepanek also gets on with the other boys of the village but fate takes a hand and he badly injures himself when he jumps into some hay. Children's wounds quickly heal and two weeks later Pepanek is healthy again. One day he is caught taking a crown out of labourer Jakub's pocket and he flogged as punishment. Thus he decides to go out to seek his fortune in the world. He then hurries via a short cut to the nearest village to see his uncle. In order to keep him on his toes, he does not afford Pepanek any of the advantages a relation may deserve and Pepanek soon returns home. He goes back to school. His friend Venousek dies who thanks him for his friendship. Pepanek is finally publicly commended for his good deeds.
