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.

Synopsis

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

Reviews

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

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.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
