"Tod Golightly comes from a long line of robbers, and he's determined to make his fortune holding up travelers on the 'toby' - robbers' slang for 'road.' Unfortunately, few wayfarers are frightened by a small boy with a wooden sword and too-big boots. Then Tod is joined by a most unlikely robber band: Martha, a slow-moving but quick-thinking donkey; Digby, a gargantuan dog; Loudmouth the magpie; and Evil, a foul-smelling ferret. The five become firm friends and quite successful thieves - until the stagecoach company sets a terrible trap. Will young Tod meet a criminal's end? Or will his friends find help in time? A swashbuckling story set in 18th century England, The Toby Man is for anyone with a taste for adventure, and a heart for hope. Old and new fans of award-winning author Dick King-Smith will find him here at his warm, witty best." Charming pen and ink illustrations by Lynette Hemmant.
