About the last instalment:
Flying Fergus 10: The Photo Finish
It’s competition time! The Hercules Hopefuls are at the International Championships at last - but how will Fergus cope with the competition pressures now that his best friend Daisy has moved away? Mum and Jambo are distracted by their upcoming wedding, Grandpa and Choppy Wallace are having problems with the team’s sponsor, who is demanding ludicrous things like banning the team from eating bananas and making them scoff biscuits instead. Manchester is starting to feel a long way from home. But when Fergus escapes to Nevermore to see some friendly faces, it’s no better there - Princess Lily is cross with her brother, and there’s a bet on which cycling team will win that could see King Woebegot lose his kingdom...
