Daniel was scared of two things - the three-metre long python that his dad keeps in their loft and the Kelly Horton gang. He has nightmares that the snake escapes from the loft, wraps itself around him and starts to squeeze. Kelly Horton and her gang give him nightmares of a different kind. Usually they'd bash boys and then let them go but now they've discovered a new way to terrify them. And when Kelly learns about the snake in Daniel's loft, she demands to see the creature. Meanwhile, there's a hunt for the ghost of a Second World War German pilot in the old air raid tunnels beneath the town where Kelly and Daniel are suddenly together and in great danger.
