LITTLE TIM AND THE BRAVE SEA CAPTAIN by Edward Ardizzone, audio by Stephen Fry

A young boy wants to be a sailor, but his parents say he is much too young. Tim grabs the chance to stow away on a steamer, but little does he expect the hard work, stormy sea and sinking ship to come.

Frances Lincoln

Timeless classics, reissued with exquisite, high production value. The illustrations switch between black and white and colour line drawings – in 1956, Edward Ardizzone received the prestigious Kate Greenaway medal for the illustrations in Tim All Alone.

The stories capture children’s imaginations with their spirit of adventure and the great outdoors. The tangible objects, coupled with the audio link where you can listen to the books told beautifully by the brilliant Stephen Fry, make these reissues a treasure for anyone’s bookshelf.

Personally, I could listen to Stephen Fry reading the shipping forecast and I would be on the edge of my seat.
