Stravaganza: City of Masks

Part of the Stravaganza series

Publisher: Bloomsbury Children's Books

Written in an inventive and engaging style, Stravaganza is an an extraordinarily exciting time-slip novel set in both sixteenth-century and contemporary Venice.

Lucien, the protagonist, who is ill with cancer and communicates via a marbled notebook (to save strain on his voice), finds that the notebook also transports him back in history to a time of thrilling intrigue and political assassination, and links him to his other self: Stravagante - a powerful magician who can travel in time and space. This is a highly-compelling and imaginative read.
