The Great Galloon

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.

A fantastic adventure book brought to life with easily accesible language and vibrant illustrations. This book was nominated for BookTrust's Best New Book Awards 2014 in the 6-8 category.
