A brilliantly inventive, fabulously illustrated addition to the Far-Flung Adventures series from the award-winning, bestselling author and illustrator team Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell.
Set in the same world as the Fergus Crane and Corby Flood stories, this is the tale of a small boy, Hugo Pepper, and his amazing exploits. Raised in the Frozen North by reindeer herders, his parents eaten by polar bears when he was just a baby, Hugo discovers that the sled they arrived in has a very special compass – one that can be set to "Home." And so Hugo arrives in Firefly Square – to discover a group of very special friends, and a dastardly enemy. With three-toed snowmen, a secret buried treasure, and a host of fabulous stories, this is a fantastic new tale in this series.
