Bannister's Muster: Snap by Barbara Gaskell Denvil

shortlisted for Book of the Month


Y.A  / Fantasy
Book One of a series

‘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 pyjamas!
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.’

I loved this full of life magical adventure! Written for young adults, I would say this first part of what promises to be a thrilling adventure series is suitable for all ages, not just the younger readers.

Straight into landing with Nathan in Medieval London I was hooked, and was enthralled by the plot, the action, the humour – the wonderful baddies and the exciting goodies.

In addition, Ms Denvil knows her history – which for this adventure is the delightful icing atop the cake.

Read and recommended with great pleasure
