Chasing the Tiger
In this gripping sequel to ‘Himalayan Kidnap’ we follow the adventures of two brothers searching for their kidnapped parents across the hills of Nepal. Vivid descriptions (and beautiful illustrations) of the wildlife and people they encounter bring this action-packed story to life.
Running away from the failures of her marriage and career in England, and the constant criticism of her unsympathetic mother, Sonia flees to Nepal and finds herself in a country of breathtaking natural beauty, populated by crocodiles and snakes and a people who, from a European perspective, seem somehow to be, at the same time, both courteous and callous.

Told from the points of view of Sonia and people she encounters on her pilgrimage, the story rattles along through a landscape of delight and cultural misunderstandings to an earth shattering climax which leads Sonia to realise that she is not, after all, a failure.
Looking for an easy relaxed read for you kids? Look no further. This is a fast-paced adventure with plenty of wildlife, dung-fights and brotherly banter.

I love the setting of this story – it’s so sumptuously told. The sights, smells and sounds are vivid and evocative, it completely took me away while I was reading it.
