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.
Remade in this beautiful 350 page hardback edition with original illustrations from Ransome, this personalised Swallows and Amazon book beautifully embellishes your child’s name in foil on the cover and features a special message on the title page.

Toy Story 3
We ordered this book for my grandsons birthday and it was delivered to us in less than a week.
The name of my grandson was added within the story all the way through the which he was absolutely thrilled about and felt he was part of all the action. We were also able to add a message to him at the beginning. The quality of the book was excellent.
We were very happy with the purchase and fully recommend you and your service.
