Fergus's friend Daisy would love to join the team too, but she doesn't have a bike - her mum thinks everything fun is dangerous. Maybe Grandpa Herc and Fergus can do up a bike from scratch for Daisy, with parts from Grandpa's junk shop? Now it is just Daisy's mum they need to persuade...Meanwhile Fergus takes a magical trip to Nevermore, where he and Princess Lily discover a magical compass bell once owned by Fergus's dad. Can the bell provide a clue to the whereabouts of Fergus's long-lost Dad? With fantastic illustrations from Clare Elsom.
