Israel Armstrong has been invited to attend the Mobile Meet in London, the annual mobile library convention, in this hilarious third novel from the Mobile Library series. Back on the north side of London, with his irascible companion Ted Carson, Israel is reunited with his family and there is much eating of paprika chicken and baklava and the drinking of good coffee. But within a day of their arrival, the mobile library is nicked. Who on earth would want to steal the old rust bucket? And how will Israel and Ted, one of literature's oddest oddball couples, ever make it to the Mobile Meet?
"[The Mobile Library books] are blissful British comedies for the thinking escapist."—Times (London)
