I enjoy nearly every book by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell that I read. This entry in the Far-Flung Adventures series is a short fantasy about Fergus Crane whose missing father has greatly affected the lives of the young boy and his mother. One has to accept the rather preposterous idea that a mother would send her child to a school on a ship where the teachers closely resemble pirates, but-once you get over that hurdle-the flying box and flying metal horse fit right into a story where a I enjoy nearly every book by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell.

I bought this book for my 8 year old, having a sister who adores the Edge Chronicles. She tore through this book and the other Far Flung adventures in less than a week and has started to re-read them again. The stories are fantastic and my wacky little person completely loves them! There are illustrations with every page turn that are so unusual and captivating. No detail was spared with this series. Highly recommend for young readers!

My 8-year-old daughter and I just finished reading this book, after reading Corby Flood which is also in the Far-Flung Adventure series. The characters and situations are so imaginative, and the illustrations are superior. The map of the islands is reminiscent of classic adventure books from my childhood. My daughter kept trying to guess what was up ahead, because she couldn't wait to find out! So much more creative and imaginative than other series.

If you're thinking about buying a gift for a young reader in the seven to nine age group, you may want to consider this new series. Brought to you by the same people who did "The Edge Chronicles" (another excellent series, but for slightly older kids), this one has large, easy to read print, simple language and wonderful illustrations to help keep the story bubbling along. To add to the fun, the dust jacket opens up into a fold-out map based on the geographical setting of the story.

Fergus Crane is the first book in the "Far-Flung Adventures" series, the second being Corby Flood, also available from Amazon. The third one "Hugo Pepper" will be available in February 2007.

Fergus Crane is a nine year old boy who lives with his mother beside the sea. His father had left on an ocean voyage many years ago, and had never returned. They get by on his mother's wages from the local bakery, and the income from extra work she does for a company named "The Fateful Voyage Trading Co." He attends school aboard a ship, with an unconventional crew and an even more unconventional syllabus.

His life changes one night when a mysterious flying box appears at his bedroom window, and he learns that he has a long-lost uncle, who thinks that Fergus is in danger. The plot thickens when the school ship suddenly sets sail with all the students except Fergus aboard.

Imaginative and creative, the story includes mechanical flying horses and other extra-ordinary gadgets, adventure and discovery, and hopefully, a happy ending.

Highly recommended.

I am a 9 year old writing a book report for this book. Here is my story:

"I am a librarian at the local Children's Library. As it is my job to read every kid's book in the library, I found this book very interesting. Fergus Crane, the hero, begins his adventure after receiving a mysterious letter from his uncle, saying Fergus' life is in danger. After many adventures including a giant mechanical flying horse that is actually a lunch box and a lesson from his gym class teaching him to do something that adds to the evil plot, Fergus Crane ends with a surprise happy ending.

Do you like adventure-packed fantasies? If so, I highly recommend this outstanding, stupendous, well-illustrated, fun-filled book. The children like it so much that we cannot keep the books on the library shelves. But don't lose hope, we have thirteen Fergus Crane books in stock.

I really enjoyed the book. I think your kids will too.

Extremely well-written with superb illustrations. I have read all of the Far Flung Adventures - this is book one of three. I plan to read The Edge Chronicles soon - a series of seven books by the same authors.

One character in Fergus Crane who I really like is Uncle Theo, an inventor who instead of using a wheelchair, uses a walking chair. A fascinating tale of fantasy and adventure. The other two Far Flung Adventures (Far-Flung Adventures: Corby Flood and Far-Flung Adventures: Hugo Pepper) build upon story elements (characters, setting, history) introduced in Fergus Crane; they are all completely different, finely crafted stories.
