It's tough for a boy who wants to play to get lumbered with looking after his toddler brother. It's even tougher when his brother vanishes! Still, Gavin is an intrepid man of action, and he mobilises his mates on fairy cycles, skateboards and anything else they can find, to create a daring rescue - and all before tea, and his mother noticing. This is a fun-filled adventure for boys of 8-9, with a ring of truth about it, the hero is based on Elizabeth's own son. Elizabeth Laird has won the Children's Book Award, the Smarties, has been short-listed for the Carnegie (twice) and is currently short-listed for the Guardian fiction award. This book sees the author writing in a more light hearted and younger style.
