Our reader reviewers loved the first book, The Great Galloon - click here to read what they thought.

A Piece of Passion from Sara O'Connor, Editorial Director   The Great Galloon series immediately made me want to grab a mop and fight alongside the comical crew. With plenty of adventures and "goodnight points" instead of chapters, I defy you not to be completely charmed by this whimsical story and its wonderful illustrations.


The Great Galloon: Voyage to the Volcano Synopsis

Voyage To The Volcano finds Stanley, Rasmussen and the rest of the Great Galloon crew on their way to the greatest party ever held: Count Heinz-Marie von Forbes-Martinez of Eisberg's birthday party. Not everyone is in the party spirit though - poor Captain Anstruther is still searching for his kidnapped bride, Isabella, but he thinks the key to winning her back may lie in the heart of the Chimney Islands, a mind-boggling patchwork of volcanoes where Anstruther and Isabella first swore eternal love. Can he attend the party and be reunited with his beloved? Stanley and Rasmussen must do battle once more with the Captain's nefarious brother Zebediah, encountering old friends, new friends and unexpected friends in frilly pink dresses along the way.
