Read full description of the books:
I have not read numbers two and three in this series, jumping straight to number four. It is now clear that Sylvia and her family are recurring characters in this series.
This is a portal fantasy in which Mr Badger finds his way into a strange mirror to enjoy a carnivalesque adventure. I was a little excited to see Sylvia found her way in after him, because characters who refuse to do what they're told is always interesting and I wanted to see what she'd get up to. Sylvia doesn't have a talking role in the portal world -- she is hiding in a lot of the pictures, to the point where I'm not even sure where Sylvia is meant to be in some of them. You can see her face inside a monster costume, and it's undoubtedly Sylvia's hand reaching up to steal the food from the men's tea party, but I'm not sure if it's Sylvia sitting on a toadstool. I'm not even sure if I'm meant to be sure. For this reason, I'm a little disappointed Sylvia doesn't have a more obvious, mischief-making role. She 'mysteriously reappears' in the real world of the hotel, imbuing her with a mysterious, magical quality absent from the first in the series. She's no doubt been drawn back by the smell of the food laid out for afternoon tea.
It is revealed in the end that Mr Badger has fallen asleep while reading a fantasy story to his young children. The entire portal fantasy was just a dream. It appears that Mrs Badger has been waiting in the living room for him to come and tell her all about it. The joke is on Mr Badger, who thinks he has just arrived home from work.
