The Lovereading4Kids comment
Tim and Ginger are cabin boys on the S.S. Royal Fusilier when they find a puppy hiding in one of the lifeboats. They decide to hide it away, because they know Captain Piper doesn’t like dogs. Somehow keeping secrets from their shipmates causes all sorts of problems, and in fact the ship nearly sinks, before Tim and Ginger come clean. All ends well: Towser, as the boys call their dog, and ship’s cat Tiger become friends, and that seems to set the tone right for everyone on board. Ardizzone writes in a clear, perfect prose and his illustrations, black-and-white and colour, dazzle. It’s lovely to see these handsome new editions of these classic stories for children. As an added extra, a free QR code allows you to listen to Stephen Fry reading the story. ~ Andrea Reece
Tim's Friend Towser by Edward Ardizzone
Tim and Ginger are working cabin boys on the S.S. Royal Fusilier when they find a puppy in one of the lifeboats. They decide to call him Towser and smuggle him on board, avoiding the watchful eyes of Captain Piper, who hates dogs. But as time goes on, Towser grows bigger and bigger... they have to work very hard at keeping him a secret. Captain Piper hates dogs!
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.
