Product description


Sophie has reminded me of one of the happiest times I ever spent on a film. The fun that was had, the friendships forged, the challenges overcome, are all delightfully recalled with a freshness and sense of adventure that has made me smile all over again. --Virginia McKenna OBE, Mrs Walker in Swallows & Amazons

Sophie's magical Swallows tales... a heart-warming account of making the movie. --Daily Mail

A fascinating insight into behind the scenes of the fi lm world. Sophie cleverly intersperses entries from the diary she wrote at the time into her amusingly written memoir of playing Titty. Lots of photos throughout the book bring the scenes to life - a delightful read. --Celia Lewis, author of An Illustrated Country Year

About the Author

Sophie Neville is an award-winning author and the current President of The Arthur Ransome Society. A member of the Nancy Blackett Trust, she joined forces with Sail Ransome in 2010 to buy the original Swallow from the film. Nowadays she lives with her husband on the south coast of England, where she gives talks on the making of the film and how Arthur Ransome influenced her life.
