About the Author:

Edward Ardizzone was born on October 16, 1900, the eldest of five children. In 1905 his family moved to Ipswich, England, where they lived until Ardizzone was fourteen. He later wrote that "it was here that I learnt to know and love the little coastal steamers that I have drawn so often in the Tim books."

The beloved illustrator of more than 170 books, Mr. Ardizzone was awarded the Kate Greenaway Medal in 1956 and the CBE (Commander of the British Empire) in 1971. The adventures of Tim are firm favorites with readers young and old throughout the world. Mr. Ardizzone died in 1979.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2—These four newly reissued works in Ardizzone's "Little Tim" series clearly show why certain titles remain classics over time. Spanning from 1936 with the publication of Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain to 1962 with Tim's Friend Towser, these charmingly traditional tales, illustrated delicately with pen and ink and soft washes of watercolor, follow the adventures of a young wannabe sailor. From stowing away aboard a steamer to rescuing a cat from a burning ship, Tim almost always winds up in some sort of trouble on the high seas—though all's well by the last page. Tim All Alone, which finds the youngster working as a cabin boy while searching for his missing parents along the seaboard, won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal in 1956. Modern adult readers may balk at the idea of a knee-high child embarking on dangerous excursions sans parents, but kids will embrace Tim's admirable independence and intrepid spirit.—Kiera Parrott, School Library Journal
