The Dangerous Small Red Car Kimosop and Tobiko enjoy hiking dangerous lifts on slow moving lorries on their way home from school. But on one of those escapades, they find themselves abandoned in the forest, a long and dangerous walk from home. That is when, against all the advice they had received, they solicit a lift from strangers in a red car. Suddenly they find themselves in the hands of child abductors whose sole aim is to make them labourers. Kimosop and Tobiko must fight not just for their freedom, but the freedom of several children they find in the forest.
