Julia Eccleshare's comment:

Edward Ardizzone’s classic picture books about Tim deserve to be made freshly available to every new generation. This handsome edition does exactly that. When Tim rescues Charlotte from the sea after she’s been washed overboard while on a trip with her aunt, a series of exciting adventures begin. A wonderful story about friendship and the pleasure of play.

Synopsis

Tim and Charlotte by Edward Ardizzone

Charlotte lives in a big house with lots of toys. You'd think that would make her happy, but it doesn't. She wants to play with some real friends, and you can't have better friends than Tim and Ginger when they're bound for adventure, and trouble!



Reviews

"Some of the saltiest and most satisfying picture books created during the last generation."
Maurice Sendak
"Mr Ardizzone...paints the wettest sea you ever saw."
The New York Times



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.
