The Lovereading4Kids comment
Stephen Fry’s glorious readings add a new dimension to Edward Ardizzone’s classic stories about Tim. Classics in their own right but now made even more compelling by Stephen Fry this books/CD set are essential for the nursery bookshelf. Tim is an ordinary small boy whose love of the sea causes him to have remarkable adventures. In each of these six handsome large format titles superbly illustrated by Edward Ardizzone, Tim shows his courage when facing difficult circumstances. By using his intelligence he resolves problems often showing greater presence of mind and resourcefulness than the adults. The six titles in this bumper book and CD set include Little Tim and the Brave sea captain, Tim all Alone and Tim in Danger.

The Little Tim Collection (Book and CD Set - read by Stephen Fry) by Edward Ardizzone
"Some of the saltiest and most satisfying picture books created during the last generation." - Maurice Sendak, author of Where the Wild Things Are.
Tim has the sort of adventures that every child needs, unshakably rooted in the real world, but unhampered by interference from anxious adults. His stirring but comforting maritime experiences are those a child might dream of - full of storms, shipwrecks and fascinating knots. He deals doggedly with dangers, never stints on chores below deck and always gets home after the voyage. - 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up
The combination of exciting action, vivid characters and fabulously detailed illustrations still make the Little Tim series enthralling. - The Ultimate First Book Guide
This is pure escapism and it is refreshing to find a book of such quality surviving and succeeding through generations of readers but still being published today amongst the buzz and fizz of novelty books. www.writeaway.org.uk
