Little Tim is delighted when Captain McFee offers him the chance to go to sea. Promising his parents he won’t neglect his school books, Tim sets off for another adventure. Ardizzone’s words and illustrations – some colour, some black-and-white – tell a marvellous story of life at sea, from the daily activities to the drama of a storm when Tim saves the life of first ship’s boy, Ginger. There’s a particularly glorious spread which depicts the crew gathered on the deck for an announcement from the captain, flags and clean washing flapping wildly in the breeze. First published in 1949 this classic picture book has lost none of its appeal and Tim’s adventures will continue to entrance young readers. As an added extra, a free QR code allows you to listen to Stephen Fry reading the story. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Tim to the Rescue by Edward Ardizzone

Bored with his schoolwork, Tim is longing to be at sea again, following his adventures in Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain. Luckily, his great friend Captain McFee appears in time for another voyage! On board ship, Tim befriends Ginger, the first ship's boy. Unfortunately, mischievous Ginger will need all of Tim's resourcefulness to get out of his next scrape...

Little Tim's adventures at sea have delighted generations of children ever since the first book was published in 1936. Edward Ardizzone, who illustrated over 170 books in his lifetime, received the prestigious Kate Greenaway medal for Tim All Alone in 1956.

About the Author

Edward Ardizzone

Edward Ardizzone was born in 1900. His family moved to Ipswich in 1905 and lived there until Ardizzone was fourteen. It was in Ipswich, as he later wrote, that he "...learnt to know and love the little coastal steamers that I have drawn so often in the Tim books."

Ardizzone illustrated more than 170 books and his outstanding work in the field of children's book illustration was recognised when he won the Kate Greenaway Medal in 1956. The adventures of Tim are firm favourites with readers, young and old, throughout the world.

He lived in Maida Vale in London for most of his life, but was away for the whole war, working as an official War Artist.

Edward Ardizzone was a member of the Royal Academy of Arts and was appointed CBE in 1971.
