Fergus Crane by Paul Stewart

Book Description

FERGUS CRANE! YOU ARE IN GREAT DANGER! I AM SENDING. HELP. Signed T. C., your long-lost Uncle Theo Fergus Crane has an almost ordinary life - having lessons taught by rather odd teachers on the school ship Betty Jeanne, helping his mother in the bakery. But then a mysterious flying box appears at the window of his waterfront home - and Fergus is plunged headlong into an exciting adventure! The box is followed by a winged mechanical horse that whisks him off to meet his long-lost uncle and his penguin helpers, Finn, Bill and Jackson. Fergus finds out that his teachers are not quite what they seem - they're actually pirates! Can Fergus and his winged horse save his schoolmates from the far-off Fire Island? And who else will he find there...?

Book Review: Fergus Crane by Paul Stewart - Reviewed by (15 Jul 2011)

Fergus Crane is the first in the Strangest Adventures trilogy, written by the Edge chronicle authors, Chris Riddell and Paul Stewart. It is an amazing and highly imaginative story about a boy called Fergus who goes to school on a pirate ship, only to miss a lesson and find that the bad hearted crew have taken his friends off to a distant land to do who knows what with them- the only thing Fergus is aware of is that things are getting very strange and he has to help, no matter what. Getting help from his long lost uncle and a bunch of well meaning penguins, Fergus sets off on the adventure of a lifetime!

This is a truly one off book, it is a must be read thing!
