Our hero Gavin is an unhappy kid. Dad is gone and poor Gavin worries about his mum. As if that wasn't enough to contend with, he only has a few close friends and is bullied. Life however is about to get a whole lot more complicated for poor Gavin when he suddenly finds himself slipping through time and becoming the hero he thought he could never be!
S.C.A.R.S is not only a fantastic fantasy novel but it also explores issues pertinent to young readers - divorce, bullying and loneliness. However, Gavin will take readers, young and old on an amazing adventure. The book is very cleverly written, slipping between Gavin's quest as he becomes the brave knight Gawain, to Gavin the schoolboy who must overcome his own difficulties and deal with the quests that real life throws at him.
I really hope that S.C.A.R.S is going to be the first book in a series as I'd love to see our hero and his friends on more exciting adventures. Highly recommended! Just brilliant!
One night he hears a voice calling and following the voice, he finds himself in a strange land where others call him Gawain and he is a knight. He rides off with a group called the Host of Red to try to defeat an evil enemy. But the enemy is strong and only Gawain is left after the battle. He reaches King Bercivorn who tells him of a quest he must go on to save the people of Unor.
Each night Gavin slips from his world to the next as his adventure as Gawain takes him onwards to find a weapon to defeat the enemy. Each day he returns to his world as Gavin. This is a tale of friendship and strength when the world about you is full of evil.

When you hear the phrase ‘fantasy medieval world’ there are certain things that you expect – knights, dragons and some sort of quest, to name just a few. And as expected, Ibbotson delivers these in style. If you are feeling a little lost and in need of a fantastical escape, this is the book for you, regardless of your age!
