From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Tommy and Dougie Finney are Mary Lou Finney's energetic younger brothers. They seem to create most of the chaos in the Finney household. They run around "like wound-up toys, making airplane noises and train noises and zooming in between us and then running up ahead and falling over each other and crying and then leaping back up again and socking each other and chasing after bumblebees" (11.26). Sounds like fun, huh?
