The Extraordinary Travels of Ferdinand Petit, Paperback / softback Book

The Extraordinary Travels of Ferdinand Petit Paperback / softback


In The Extraordinary Travels of Ferdinand Petit, children's author Hong Kong Grandad recounts the tales as told to him by a `little person', Ferdinand Petit, as he sits on the author's postbox an evening. Ferdinand Petit is well-travelled and well-respected, having survived many gruelling adventures.

He has fought ants in the deserts with the French Foreign Legion; he has defended the Five Arm Men; he has defeated stoats, rats and the icemen; and has sailed the stormy seas. These stories are based on those which Hong Kong Grandad told his children and grandchildren over the years: on wet weekend mornings, on long car journeys, walking around cities and on supposedly educational visits.

They are a delightful collection for young readers.
