Your Child Abroad: a travel health guide
“adventurous parents…should pack a copy…It is packed with sensible advice about how to avoid exotic illnesses and what to do in emergencies (such as being burnt by hot buffalo milk)…it is also a delight to read.”
Daily Telegraph, London
In this second of the Alex and James adventures the story begins with the boys and their parents imprisoned by Maoists in Nepal, in filthy conditions. As they are being moved to a remote hideout, the boys escape and, with their friend Bim, they try to follow their parents, hoping to free them. This is a journey fraught with danger not only from the angry Maoists but also from wild animals and hostile conditions. Wonderfully accurate black and while illustrations by Betty Levene bring the story (and the animals) to life for the reader.

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.
