9780385751124: Far-Flung Adventures: Fergus Crane

Fergus Crane has an almost ordinary life—attending school on the ship Betty Jeanne and helping his mother in the bakery. But then a winged mechanical horse appears and whisks Fergus off to meet his long-lost uncle. Not only that, he finds out that his teachers are not what they seem—they're actually pirates! Can Fergus save his schoolmates from the far-off Fire Island? Perfect for 8- to 12-year-old readers, this is a deliciously accessible story.

"Part Dickensian comedy, part pirate adventure."--Publishers Weekly

About the Author:

PAUL STEWART is a highly regarded author of books for young readers and is the co-creator of the bestselling Edge Chronicles.  He lives in Brighton, England, with his family.

CHRIS RIDDELL, co-creator of the Edge Chronicles, is an award-winning illustrator and political cartoonist.  He lives in Brighton, England, with his family.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-5–The creators of The Edge Chronicles (Random) are back with an auspicious beginning for a new series. When a mysterious flying box, complete with wings, arrives at Fergus Crane's window with a message from his long-lost Uncle Theo, the boy learns that he is in danger and that his uncle is sending help. Help is what he needs when the clipper ship Betty-Jeanne that serves as his school disappears with all of the students but Fergus still aboard. The headmaster and his staff are more than just vaguely reminiscent of pirates, and Fergus will need Uncle Theo's technology, and his own bravery, to rescue them. What make this book especially appealing are Riddell's pen-and-ink drawings that appear on almost every page; they capture the tone of the story as well as the personalities of the characters. They also add a great deal of variety to the design of the book, ranging from traditional full-page illustrations to portraits of the main characters to smaller drawings spread over the pages. The combination of witty art and compelling text make this a perfect choice for early chapter-book readers.–Tim Wadham, Maricopa County Library District, Phoenix, AZ
