About the Author:

Mary Hoffman is an acclaimed children's author and critic. She is the author of the internationally bestselling picture book Amazing Grace. Her Stravaganza sequence for Bloomsbury has its own fan forum and the latest, Stravaganza - City of Secrets, was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal. The Falconer's Knot was shortlisted for the Guardian Fiction Award. She has three grown-up children and lives with her husband in West Oxfordshire.

From Booklist:

Living in the shadow of her twin brother, Isabel begins to visit Talia, an alternate-reality, sixteenth-century Italy. Now a stravagante, one of several secret time travelers at her London school, she grows in self-confidence and independence. Still, she wonders how to save her Talian city as enemies approach from sea and land. Each novel in the beautifully conceived Stravaganza series increases the complex network of characters, places, connections, and intrigues. Although the continuing stories of characters from the previous books sometimes slow the momentum building in Isabel’s tale, they also increase the richness of this compelling fantasy world. Grades 6-10. --Carolyn Phelan
