Cross your fingers and make a wish...
Tim certainly wouldn't have wished for this – his best friend injured and then abducted from hospital, his father struck down by unexplained fainting fits, an unsettling new neighbour who no one else has even noticed and his home being burgled. And on top of it all, violent storms are brewing, looking like the sky might crack open.
Besides, Tim didn't want to cross his fingers in the first place but now it's more serious than just rescuing window cleaners and thwarting the occasional bank heist. The dodo might be coming back, his trebuchet for the school fête isn't finished and the only help he can find is written in Greek.
And his maths teacher would be furious if he knew Tim was responsible for the second loss of Fermat's last theorem.
