T-Bag the madcap witch is back with a vengeance!

She is 500 years old today but everyone has forgotten her birthday. That is, until the postman delivers a very strange letter – whatever can it mean? Undaunted, T-Bag and her trusty companion, T-Shirt, set out on a mysterious adventure which will lead them to a Transylvanian castle, the icy wastes of the North Pole and…

Will our two heroes ever get back to the T-Room alive?

Cover Picture shows Elizabeth Estensen as T-Bag in the Thames Television production. (This is from the Series T-Bag Strikes Again Ep3-10 & T-Bag Bounces Back.)
Produced and directed by Leon Thau;
Executive Producer, Charles Warren.


This book was released in 1990 and it tells the story of Tallulah Bag’s 500th Birthday and her quest to find a grand surprise through a series of clues (If this seems familiar it was adapted for the last T-Bag series, Take Off With T-Bag). This was released in 1990 after Tallulah Bag was ultimately defeated in the series T-Bag And the Revenge Of The T-Set (1989) so either she is alive and well or it happened before she was destroyed. T-Shirt and Granny Bag appear in the story along with Tabatha Bag who is mentioned in the last chapter at Tallulah’s Birthday Party.

The Cover

"A must for every T-Bag fanatic!"

A welcome diversion from the series and a fantastic read. The story makes a drastic departure from the previous series and as a result makes the story more unpredictable.

Split into eight chapters this story tells the tale of Tallulah Bag’s quest to find her Birthday surprise. As we follow T-Bag and T-Shirt’s journey through the many lands the clues take them to it shows the story is written exceedingly well although some of the stories are similar to previous episodes this doesn’t detract from the enjoyment of the book.

Highly influenced by Elizabeth Estensen’s portrayal of Tallulah Bag and John Hasler’s portrayal of T-Shirt the characters come to life within your imagination.

I got this book from a market book stall when I was quite young and I was very pleased with it then and I’m even more pleased now as it is a great read even in your twenties.

This book is exceedingly rare, with a limited print run, so getting your hands on this would prove tricky to say the least but it is a must for every T-Bag fanatic!
