Product description

Fergus Crane has a pretty normal life, going to lessons on the school ship Betty Jeanne and helping his mum in the bakery. But when a mysterious flying box appears at the window of his waterfront home, Fergus is whisked off into a daring adventure! The box is followed by a winged mechanical horse, which Fergus must ride far away, on a quest to save his long-lost uncle! And soon Fergus finds out that his teachers are actually pirates! Can Fergus and his winged horse save his schoolmates from the fearsome Fire Island? And what else will Fergus find there?
