Travelling Restaurant

April 25, 2018

Lady Gall is the Provisional queen of the Kingdom of Fontania and a nasty piece of work she is as well. She has no claims to the throne and does not have the power of magic that is possessed by the royal family, so she bans it. Big mistake!

The true king died shortly after a catastrophic event that became known as The Big Accident and the crown and heirs to the throne disappeared. Lady Gall takes over and sets about, in a tyrannical way, to keep the throne for herself and destroy all those who are the rightful heirs.

Jasper’s father works for Lady Gall in the Workroom of Knowledge but he is only there because he has invented a beauty product called beauteen which Lady Gall thinks makes her look beautiful. Two fingers down the throat here.

Jasper sees Lady Gall try to poison his baby sister Sibilla and this precipitates a late night escape by the whole family by ship, a ship that is later sunk in a storm scattering the survivors to different parts of the Kingdom of Fontania.

Jasper doesn’t get on the ship his family does as his Uncle Trump ensures that he stays on the dockside, but Jasper is resilient and takes a small colourful ship called The Travelling Restaurant that is owned by Polly and Dr Rocket. They sail from the City of Spires chased by Lady Gall and her henchmen.

However all is not as it seems and everybody is someone other than who they say.

The Travelling Restaurant is a magical story, set in a magnificent kingdom filled with colourful characters. Our favourite character was Jasper, who is an incredibly brave boy who gets into some dangerous situations, in the hope of finding his sister. The descriptions of the food that they prepare on the Travelling Restaurant will make your mouth water and your stomach grumble. Barbara Else has created a world that you will never want to leave.

Amazing! The book is about a boy whose family is keeping many secrets from him. He comes across a magical ship the traveling restaurant and finds all the answers to his questions. I loved the mystery of the story.
