For sixty-five years Toby the toy panda has lain in the dark loft. Now, trouble in the house wakes him: the arrival of child-hating Mrs Malevant, who’s come to mind Izzy and her 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 house? A charming story about a toy panda who helps the children stand up to a bully, from acclaimed author Jenny Nimmo.
