Bannister's Muster by Barbara Gaskell Denvil

Bannister's Muster


Chill with a Book READERS’ Award

What’s a boy to do when he wakes in the night to find a giant balloon and a strange man in his bedroom?
For young Nathan Bannister, the sight of a mad wizard in his room is only the beginning--as strange and wonderful things await those brave enough to climb aboard! Nathan leaves behind what was once his quiet life and the warmth of his bed for the great unknown. Whisked away to medieval London and left to fend for himself, Nathan learns that adventure is never simple--and the past is no place for a boy in his pyamas!
Magic, adventure, wonder, and excitement await those who seek it. With new friends, and many enemies, Nathan’s journey to wondrous and magical places is only beginning. There’s room for all as Nathan is joined by his little sister to help share in the adventure.
So climb aboard, bumble-bee head--there’s adventure to be had and worlds to explore! There will be time to sleep when we are older.

“This beautifully written children’s book really drew me in. The characters are refreshing, there’s unusual adventures and atmosphere which make it all seem to come alive. The pace is fast, and I couldn’t put the book down. A new Harry Potter explosion, I think. I read it to my son and I was just as captivated as he was. There’s magic, history, mystery and humour. What more could you want?”
SNAP is Book 1 of this series. Nathan has a lot more to discover in Book 2, Snakes & Ladders, with the help of new and old friends. And now Book three: Blind Man's Buff, Which will be published in March.
