Product description

Review

This is pure escapism and it is refreshing to find a book of such quality surviving and succeeding through generations of readers but still being published today amongst the buzz and fizz of novelty books

||

An exquisite reissue of Edward Ardizzone's classic 1936 picture book, which is sure to enchant a new generation of readers

||

The combination of exciting action, vivid characters and fabulously detailed illustrations still make the Little Tim series enthralling.

||

This charming and ultimately reassuring story is a reissue of Edward Ardizzone's classic 1936 picture book. The exquisite illustrations have stood the test of time and are sure to enchant a new generation of children and their parents.

||

Tim has the sort of adventures that every child needs, unshakably rooted in the real world, but unhampered by interference from anxious adults. His stirring but comforting maritime experiences are those a child might dream of - full of storms, shipwrecks and fascinating knots. He deals doggedly with dangers, never stints on chores below deck and always gets home after the voyage.

||

This is the first book I ever read (age 5) and it started my passion for sea stories. Little Tim stows away on a ship. He makes friends with the captain but then a storm blows up and the ship starts to sink. The crew put off in the lifeboats, leaving only the captain (who refuses to go) and Tim (who's been forgotten). I remember my fear as a small boy when I thought Tim was going to drown. I won't tell you what happens. Read it for yourself. It's a charming book and beautifully illustrated by the author.

In 1905 his family moved to Ipswich, where he learnt to know and love the little coastal steamers that he was to draw so often in the Little Tim books. Illustrator of more than 170 much-loved children's books, Edward Ardizzone was awarded the Kate Greenaway Medal in 1956 and the CBE in 1971. He died in 1979.

He also trod the boards with the likes of Emma Thompson and Tony Slattery in the Footlights. Critical acclaim was followed by popular appeal with the move to television. Memorable outings included Blackadder, A Bit of Fry & Laurie and Jeeves and Wooster. Big screen outings included Wilde, Gosford Park and Peter’s Friends. He also read all of the Harry Potter books for the highly successful unabridged audiobook edtions.

I first came across this book in my school library when I was about 9 and fell in love with this book. Edward Ardizzone is not only a good story teller he is a brilliant artist. It is still great and still gives me just as much enjoyment.

This story was much enjoyed by my children and now by my 5 year old grandson.
Tim is an endearing, down to earth and dogged little boy who has exciting, nail-biting adventures which always end happily.
