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.

One of our Books of the Year 2013 & March 2013 Debut of the Month A Piece of Passion from the Editor, Sara O'Connor - The Great Galloon 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 is a flying airship which combines the remarkable gadgetry of the flying galleon in the film Stardust, with the humour and action of Pirates of the Caribbean. This rollicking piratical read whisks the reader through the air and on a voyage of adventure, peopled by characters such as Stanley, a clever boy with a small horn, and Rasmussen, a reluctant countess-to-be. .........................................
