SWALLOWS AND AMAZONS SWALLOWS AND AMAZONS
Ref C310

Written in the 1930's Swallows and Amazons is a childrens adventure story. As well as being for children it is about children on holiday in the Lake District. John, Susan, Titty and Roger are desperate to camp on 'Wild Cat' island and are anxiously waiting for a telegram from their navy father saying whether he thinks it safe for them to go. Finally the telegram arrives with the immortal words 'Better drowned than duffers. If not duffers wont drown' and the adventure begins.

This superb book is redolent of the time in which it was written when children could, and did, play and explore on their own, living their own fantasy life to the full. It is a wonderful book to read to children and will delight the adult reader as well as the child.
