Description

For 65 years Toby the toy panda has lain in darkness of the loft. Now, trouble in the house wakes him: the arrival of bullying, child-hating Mrs Malevant, who's come to mind Izzy and her three siblings while their parents are away.

Somehow Toby speaks to Izzy, just as he used to speak to his former owner, her great-uncle Maurice. The children desperately need the support of their great-uncle and Aunt Folly to stand up to Mrs Malevant. Can Toby help restore happiness to the troubled house?

About Jenny Nimmo

She graduated and acted in repertory theater in various towns and cities: Eastbourne, Tunbridge Wells, Brighton, Hastings, and Bexhill.

She left BBC to marry a Welsh artist David Wynn Millward and went to live in Wales in her husband's family home. They live in a very old converted watermill, and the river is constantly threatening to break in, as it has done several times in the past, most dramatically on her youngest child's first birthday. During the summer they run a residential school of art, and she has to move her office, put down tools (type-writer and pencil, and don an apron and cook! They have three grown-up children, Myfawny, Ianto, and Gwenwyfar. June Barrie is a British actress who has appeared on television in Casualty and Heartbeat.
