The Big Race is a book written by John Pye

It was published in 1993 by ABC books.


In a country at the top of the world, or the bottom according to your point of view, there's a city that's built around a harbour...

In this delightful book you will meet Ferry Boat Fred, the smallest of all the ferries on the harbour, and all his harbour friends. Fred wins a ferry race for the very first time and discovers, along with his sister Kate, a very strange sound... The illustrations capture the appeal of the Ferry Boat Fred television series where Pelican Pete, Spike the echidna, Belinda Brushtail and all the ferries come to life.
