Thrilling adventures and hilarious capers from three brilliant children's authors in one audiobook collection.
THAT TIME I GOT KIDNAPPED
When fourteen-year-old Jacob misses his connecting flight in Chicago, he tries to complete his journey to LA by Greyhound bus. But on board he meets American teenager Jennifer, who is carrying a mysterious package and being chased by an enigmatic pursuer known only as 'the Cowboy'... And she needs a partner in crime. The unlikely pair soon find themselves on the road-trip of a lifetime - a funny, filmic, page-turning adventure.
THE KID WHO CAME FROM SPACE
A small village in the wilds of Northumberland is rocked by the disappearance of twelve-year-old Tammy. Only her twin brother, Ethan, knows she is safe - and the extraordinary truth of where she is. It is a secret he must keep, or risk never seeing her again. But that doesn't mean he's going to give up. A remarkable story of sibling connection, friendship and interstellar adventure.
THE TAYLOR TURBOCHASER
The Taylor TurboChaser is a road-trip rollercoaster... with a twist. At its heart is the unforgettable Amy Taylor. Amy loves cars, and dreams of being a driver. But there's a major catch: her slow old wheelchair with its broken wheel. When Amy finally gets a new electric one, it's exciting... at first. But standard engines only have so much power. And that's where Rahul comes in - Amy's best friend and genius inventor. Soon Rahul turns a wheelchair into... a supercar! And so the Taylor TurboChaser is born. But when it all goes suddenly wrong Amy is going to have to hit the road - and drive...
