When Tim finds an abandoned and bedraggled little dog outside his house, he can't just leave him there, even though his parents hate the idea of pets in their house.

To find them, he will have to break into a high security prison (and out again!) and escape from the consequent hue and cry.

A ripening mango which must not fall... if Sante is to tell their story and her own. Rich in the rhythms and colours of Africa and glittering circus days.
