9780044407720: Escape from Kathmandu

A laugh-out-loud romp through the Himalayas from the worldwide bestselling author of the Mars series

The Great Mysteries of Nepal are in danger of being uncovered and destroyed: George and Fred are hanging out in Nepal, trekking, climbing and generally having a good time. Before long they find themselves caught up in some weird schemes: rescuing a real, live yeti from a bunch of deranged scientists; scaling Mount Everest; saving the mystical city of Shangri-La and the extraordinary Kingdom Underground.

On the way they’re chased by the US Secret Service, join forces with a 431-year-old Tibetan and almost start World War III…

Review:

‘Refreshing, whimsical and often laugh-out-loud funny… Kathmandu is lovingly and convincingly depicted, the scenic description often breathtaking’
WASHINGTON POST

From the Back Cover:

George and Fred wanted to hang out in Nepal, relax a bit. They didn’t reckon rescuing a real, live yeti, scaling Mount Everest, trying to save the mystical city of Shangri-La, getting chased by the US Secret Service, joining forces with a 431-year-old Tibetan and maybe even starting World War III.

But then, you never do …

“Refreshing, whimsical and often laugh-out-loud funny … Kathmandu is lovingly and convincingly depicted, the scenic description often breathtaking”

“A delightful romp”
