About the Author:

Arthur Ransome was born in 1884. He was in Russia in 1917 and witnessed the Revolution, which he reported for the Manchester Guardian. After escaping to Scandinavia, he settled in the Lake District of England with his Russian wife where, in 1929, he wrote Swallows and Amazons. Thus began a writing career that has produced some of the best children s literature of all time.

Review:

In many ways Peter Duck is the best of the series. --Guardian

This is the stuff of real imagination which might so easily happen . . . all the details are true to life, the ship is a real ship, with all its sails and rigging made familiar, and the voyage which those happy children make to southern seas and coral islands is the beautiful possibility of daring and freedom become living and credible. --Listener

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

?There is plenty of excitement, a little danger, a quality of thinking, planning and fun which is delightful and stimulating. --From the Trade Paperback edition
