Nine year old Fergus is not prepared for a flying silver box that arrives bearing a warning from his long lost Uncle Theo. What danger is he in? How do the pirate-like teachers on his floating school figure into this mystery? When the ship sails away with his classmates on board it takes bravery and resourcefulness, (and a flying mechanical horse and a map making lunchbox), to help Fergus find the meaning of the message. Will Fergus save the day? Read Fergus Crane, the first book in the Far-Flung Adventures series by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell to find out.  (New Hampshire Great Stone Face nominee, 2007-2008)
