About this title


Tom and his two-seater, jam-powered frog, attended by Aunt Bundlejoy Cozysweet, jump into adventures involving Tom's enemy, Captain Najork, the captain's hired sportsmen and jealous wife, and the headmistress of the girls' boarding school

From the Inside Flap:

Captain Najork has never quite got over the time that Tom beat him and his Hired Sportsmen at womble, muck and sneedball, so when he sees Tom hurtle past his window in a two-seater jam-powered frog, he sets off in hot pursuit.
