Product Description

Book Description

What on earth did Bill have to bring the wimpish Gustavus with them on holiday? Neither Jack nor Kiki the parrot like the boy at all. But when Gustavus is kidnapped, along with Philip, Dinah and Lucy-Ann, Jack must bravely follow them to a faraway country and unravel a plot to kill the king.

From the Back Cover

ADVENTURE… MYSTERY… DANGER

Philip, Dinah, Lucy-Ann and Jack are surprised when they find out they have to share their holiday cottage with a strange boy – Gus, a prince from a distant country.

Surprise turns to excitement and fear when all except Jack are kidnapped. They have to escape – and save Gus’s uncle, the King – but how?

Jack takes charge, with a little help – for the circus has come to town!

Bill brings home a strange little boy one evening and announces that he is to spend the hollidays with the family. They all leave for Little Brockleton, where they are to spend several quiet weeks in the country. However, things go wrong after Philip, Lucy-Anne, Dinah and the mystery guest "Gussy" are kidnapped and taken to a far-away country. Jack and Kiki manage to climb aboard both the car and plane taking the others away and find themselves in Tauri-Hessia, a land where no-one speaks English and they are often mistaken as a performing duo! They join the travelling circus where Jack befriends Pedro, a Spanish boy who helps him to plan a daring and dangerous rescue of the others. Kiki provides some good laughs throughout the book and proves to be an invaluable member of the rescue party when the plan is finally put into action.

Read the Adventure series as a child, and enjoyed them just as much as an adult. There is just the right amount of suspense and thrill for kids.
