Driving the Fishy Frog

One look at the cover should tell you what the Fishy Frog is. Yep, an old fashion Landrover, complete with fishing rod holders, tackle box on the side and - hey, wait a minute. Those are kids behind the wheel. That can't be right. Driving is a job for grown-ups, not boys still years away from a drivers licence. But sometimes life doesn't play by the rules and when Ben and Ash find their Grandad is dying after a snake bite, it's up to them to him to safety. There's only one way it's going to happen. Someone will have to drive the Fishy Frog over the rocks and through the treacherous sand. Will they make it, or will the tide and the surf turn the old Landrover into a battered and rusting wreck.
