    The Best Birthday Bike, the first book in the series, finds Fergus Hamilton getting a rusty old bike for his 9th birthday from his mum and granddad.

He finds himself transported to Nevermore, a land where cycling is banned by the wicked King Woebegot.

    Soon Fergus, his chimp and their new friend Princess Lily are ignoring the king's rule and bunny-hopping on their bikes over the Swamp of Certain Death. When Fergus returns to the real world, he remembers he needs to complete a time trial in order to join the local cycling team. Will he be able to impress without the help of magic?
