The Lovereading4Kids comment
A deservedly prize-winning title, Fergus Crane is a delightful, fantastical romp with a nautical theme. Young Fergus Crane receives a mysterious invitation to join the School Ship Betty-Jeanne. What he finds on board from the sinister headmaster Captain Claw through to his unlikely band of teachers does not inspire confidence. But Fergus is a brave boy and a bold one who has a great destiny marked out for him. When he discovers the School Ship Betty -Jeanne has sailed away to Fire Isle without him but with his timid school mates, he sets off in hot pursuit on the back of a flying horse. Wonderful illustrations embellish the fanciful details beautifully.
Perfect for Reluctant Readers as well as keen readers. To view other titles we think are suitable for reluctant readers please click here.
