Flying Fergus 7 – The Wreck-It Race is due out in November
Flying Fergus fans rejoice! The seventh book in the series by cycling legend Sir Chris Hoy and award wining author Joanna Nadine is due out in November. Entitled The Wreck-It Race, the next installment in Fergus’s adventures sees him coming to terms with a new coach.
This is what we know so far about the plot: Fergus has been looking forward to his hero, cycling champion “Spokes” Sullivan, bringing his winning ways to the Hercules’ Hopefuls, to help them gain glory at the International time trails. So when Grandpa introduces Charlotte Campbell, the successful captain of the Paralympic wheelchair basketball team, Fergus and his team mates are far from impressed. Charlie certainly has some interesting training methods, and soon she has the team doing yoga and wheelbarrow races. When she enters them in the Wreck-It Run, a charity race where everyone creates their own adapted bikes from parts and must compete in pairs, Fergus is less than impressed.
Flying Fergus fans can find out whether Charlotte’s unorthodox techniques help Fergus and the rest of the Hopefuls improve their times when the book is released on November 17th. You can pre-order your copy now from Amazon for £4.99.
If you’re not familiar with the Flying Fergus series, they follow the adventures of Fergus Hamilton, who gets up to all sorts of adventures with his cycling team, the Hercules’ Hopefuls. However, Fergus also has a secret. His bike has special powers, and he’s able to enter a magical world, where he faces all manner to exciting challenges, and where he hopes one day to find his Dad. The books are aimed at primary age kids, and make great bedtime stories for KS1 or read alone books for KS2. The series is written by Sir Chris Hoy and Joanna Nadine, and the illustrations by Clare Elsom really bring the stories to life. The first book in the series is The Best Birthday Bike, which introduces all the characters. There is a narrative throughout the series, so it’s best to read them in order if you can.
