The Lovereading comment:
Chosen by Quentin Blake. Ardizzone’s illustrations may seem a little dated now, but that’s the real joy of this one and the various other Tim stories. It’s a fantastic story that’s also wonderfully satisfying for parent and child alike. It won the Kate Greenaway Award in 1953 and has stood the test of time quite brilliantly. A wonderful story to read aloud.
SynopsisTim All Alone by Edward Ardizzone
Tim arrives home after a long holiday to find that his parents have vanished. He is determined to search, if necessary, the whole wide world, until he has found them.
'Mr. Ardizzone... paints the wettest sea you ever saw.' The New York Times
About The Author
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.
