It is Jasper’s twelfth birthday, but his parents refuse to admit that he is older than ten. However, his Uncle Trump arrives and gives him a dagger as a 12th birthday gift. The land of Fontania is ruled by Lady Gall who has named herself Provisional Monarch until the real King or Queen is found. Jasper’s family discovers that Lady Gall is having a crown made for herself so she can really gain control of the country and they also realize that Lady Gall plans to kill them so they are forced to leave. Jasper becomes separated from the family and he finds himself as an assistant waiter on a strange ship (the Traveling Restaurant) which is run by the captain, Dr. Rocket, and a young woman named Polly. Lady Gall’s soldiers, nasty pirates and a variety of misfortunes plague Jasper and his companions as he searches for his family across the Old Ocean. This is a wonderful adventure of magic lost and regained. Reviewed by BPL volunteer EE.
