Kidnapped is a Buzz Book and was the first title to be released in the series. It was written by Fiona Hardwick and released in 1990.


The story starts with the Star Tugs all having a chat with each other, then going off to do their jobs. Sunshine has the job of pulling Lord Stinker. He was hoping that he could have an adventure. Zip and Zug overhear him and decide to kidnap him. The two switchers bump and escort Sunshine away without him realising who was doing it. He is tied up inside a shed, and the two leave him there. Despite this, Sunshine is able to cut himself free from the rope.

The rest of the Star Tugs wonder where Sunshine is, and, with Zorran's help, they go out to search for him. They arrive back at the Star Dock and find Sunshine has returned. Sunshine tells the adventure he's had to the other Stars. Zip and Zug try sneak away but Zorran catches them and yells at them for their actions.



  • The events in this story take place after the episode Sunshine.


  • In one of the illustrations, Zip and Zug are missing their numbers.
