It’s summer 1929 in the Lake District and Roger, John, Susan and Titty sail to a deserted island aboard Swallow, where they enjoy hiking, fishing and sailing adventures. The island holds more in store for them when two ferocious pirates challenge Roger and his siblings to a battle that lasts the summer months.
A timeless classic from Arthur Ransome, reminiscing his childhood of long summer days filled with adventure, this book will spark your child’s imagination and teach them to venture outside for their own escapades.

Bought as a Christmas present for my newphew and Neiles. Very special item - they loved it and it was posted promptly
I thought there would be a delay getting my book to Australia due to the pandemic. But there wasn’t! From the moment I purchased my item the process was prompt and seamless

Our grand-daughter was delighted!
Delivered ahead of schedule which was excellent. The book is well produced, colourful and entertaining and our grand-daughter loved seeing her name repeatedly included in the story.

FRAUDULENT!!!! DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY. They don’t give you a tracking number. “My orders” and “track your order” pages are always “down”. I paid expedited shipping (10 days), said they “accidentally” shipped ground (15 days), it’s been 2 months and haven’t received it. Don’t believe all the fake positive reviews.

50th Birthday Surprise
I ordered a special birthday ptesent for my Husband's 50th. I wanted something different for his birthday, and I knew that a newspaper history book of Liverpool FC would be a perfect choice.
I ordered this book on the 5th January, and I received my order within 3 days. I wss really impressed with the service, and the quality of the book i would definitely recommend to family and friends.
