Lal and his brother Dilip miss home. They don’t like drizzle, midges, or the tiger skin rug in their creepy new house. All they want is to leave Scotland and go back to India. But that’s before they make friends with Jenny, and before the tiger comes back to life…
The tiger tells them it will take them home in return for their help: it cannot rest until it fulfills an old promise. Can Lal, Dilip and Jenny help it on its quest? Will they get back home? And who is following them?
