The beautiful second volume in the cherished adventure series that the Guardian called “the 1930s equivalent of JK Rowling.”

The Swallows and Amazons return to their lakeside home (in England’s Lake District in the 1930s) bursting with grand schemes for the summer—camping, hiking, fishing and exploring. But a shipwreck and an impending visit from a Great-Aunt threaten to foil all their plans. Never fear: the discovery of a hidden valley and a secret cave lend new excitement to their days!

The sequel to Swallows and Amazons, Swallowdale is charming and imaginative, yet firmly rooted in the reality of nature. Swallowdale will “capture the imagination of the Harry Potter generation” (Guardian) and will be treasured by generations to come.

About the Author:

Arthur Ransome (1884-1967) was the author of more than thirty books for children. Born in Leeds in 1884, he enjoyed active, outdoor holidays, many of which became the settings for his children’s stories. Swallows and Amazons, the first of the series of the same name, is regarded as a timeless classic of children’s literature.

Review:

The author really does know how to write for children: in other words, he writes of what he himself delights in and so pleases without any effort both young and old. --The Nation

This book is both silvery present and golden retrospect. All that is tedious and sullen and deceptive vanishes in its sunniness as clouds vanish in the tempered air of a summer day. . . We think that the book will last, too, from edition unto edition. --Saturday Review

There is plenty of excitement, a little danger, a quality of thinking, planning and fun which is delightful and stimulating.TLS

He makes a tale of adventure a handbook to adventure. --Observer
