- Three children return home for the holidays to find there is a boy living next door to them - a very mysterious boy. People tell them there is no boy there, but they know there is. Who is he and why is he hiding? They tunnel under the hedge to the boy, and then the fun begins. Kit is a prisoner and is in danger of being kidnapped. The children make up their minds to save him.
