The Lovereading4Kids comment

Tim Bowler, February 2010 Guest Editor, chose Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain. Here's why:

"This is the first book I ever read (age 5) and it started my passion for sea stories. Little Tim stows away on a ship. He makes friends with the captain but then a storm blows up and the ship starts to sink. The crew put off in the lifeboats, leaving only the captain (who refuses to go) and Tim (who's been forgotten). I remember my fear as a small boy when I thought Tim was going to drown. I won't tell you what happens. Read it for yourself. It's a charming book and beautifully illustrated by the author."

Synopsis

Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain by Edward Ardizzone

Things don't go to plan for Tim, the youngest ever sailor, when he stows away on board a steamer!

Reviews

"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

"An exquisite reissue of Edward Ardizzone's classic 1936 picture book, which is sure to enchant a new generation of readers" - www.booktrusted.com

"The combination of exciting action, vivid characters and fabulously detailed illustrations still make the Little Tim series enthralling." - The Ultimate First Book Guide

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.
