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.

Cliff spent a lifetime living, travelling and working worldwide in, on and around ships and the sea. The stories are based on those told to his children and grandchildren over the years; on wet weekend mornings, on long car journeys and walking around cities, supposedly on educational visits. He now lives in France and sometimes still gets asked to tell adventure stories when some of the family get together, which is basically the reason for this book.

    Great book. Ferdinand Petit goes nearly everywhere and does nearly everything and you find out that being little is harder than you think. I can't wait to grow up and go on some great adventures of my own. Great book. 10 out of 10
