Banzai’s Unexpected Voyage

(4 customer reviews)


SKU: Banzai Category:


What might an arm-wrestling, garlic-chewing, shanty-whistling ship’s cat keep so hidden that even he doesn’t dare look? Picking up the story a few days after the dramatic climax to book one, we join Banzai on his unusual nautical quest.
It’s New Year and a time for resolutions. Under the watchful eye of Horatio Fox, Banzai is persuaded to face the secrets of his closely-guarded carpet bag. Then he promptly vanishes from St Benfro.

Grubson Pug sets off in pursuit of his missing ship’s cat in a chase across Europe to Venice. Caught up in the confusion of Carnival, Banzai learns to accept help from friends when the situation is too complicated for one proud and trouble-prone cat.

    Banzai’s Unexpected Voyage is a wonderful children’s story and definitely one adults won’t mind reading repeatedly. This stands among the best I have seen in this genre – expertly weaves a series of life lessons with many deft turns of phrase. This will be one that makes my very short list for bedtime reading.
