The Lovereading4Kids comment
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

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.
