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.
