Books in the series: A Great Galloon Book

The Great Galloon

The Great Galloon

Author: Tom Banks Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/03/2013

Like MUPPETS TREASURE ISLAND. But a little less fur. And in the sky. The Great Galloon is an enormous airship, built by Captain Meredith Anstruther and manned by his crew, who might seem like a bit of a motley bunch but who are able to fight off invading marauders whilst drinking tea and sweeping floors! Captain Anstruther is preparing to marry the beautiful Lady Isabella, but disaster strikes when his evil younger brother comes aboard for the wedding and steals Isabella away onto his underwater Sumbaroon. Stanley, a clever boy with a small horn, and Rasmussen, a reluctant countess-to-be, are busy waiting for an adventure to begin. Instead they have to fight off BeheMoths, avoid enormous Seagles, encounter the terrifying (but nice really) Brunt and save the Galloon from sinking. How will they ever find the Captain's bride when nothing's happening? THE GREAT GALLOON is a humorous CAPTAIN PUGWASH meets MONTY PYTHON adventure perfect for reading aloud and for growing readers looking for a silly, funny book.

The Great Galloon and the Pirate Queen

The Great Galloon and the Pirate Queen

Author: Tom Banks Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 29/07/2015

The final showdown between the Great Galloon and the evil crew of the Sumbaroon. Captain Anstruther and the crew of his Great Galloon have trapped the evil Zebediah and his Sumbaroon at the base of a waterfall - at last they will rescue the captain's stolen bride, Isabella! But the Sumbaroon sprouts mechanical legs and escapes over land like a devious metal spider. Stanley and Rasmussen are determined to stop Zebediah from taking over the Great Galloon, but it turns out that it isn't Zebediah who is after control of the enormous airship. Will they figure out the treachery in time? Including brilliant illustrations by John Kelly, this action-packed third book surpasses all expectations, and proves that people working together, no matter their backgrounds, can accomplish anything.

Voyage to the Volcano

Author: Tom Banks Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/08/2013

Captain Anstruther and his motley crew of sky-pirates are back for more adventures! Picking up the story where THE GREAT GALLOON ended, 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 Fforbes-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. Expect hilarity and chaos to ensue!
