'Jumbo Jets' is a series which combines lively stories and pictures in lots of exciting ways, for younger readers who have enjoyed Jets and want a longer story.
When Tony is woken by a noise in the middle of the night he thinks it must be a burglar. It turns out to be his drippy uncle, who installs himself in the house while Mum and Dad are away. But can Uncle Mervyn fend off the real burglars and can he persuade Tony's baby brother to eat something other than baked beans?
