9780099582533: Coot Club (Vintage Childrens Classics)

'Let fly jib sheet! Slack away main! Fenders out!'

Dick and Dorothea - also known as The Ds - arrive in Norfolk all ready to learn how to sail. They couldn't hope for a better teacher than Tom Dudgeon. But Tom is in a spot of trouble. After seeing the beastly Margoletta moored clean across the nests of his beloved coots, Tom set the motorcruiser adrift. Now the enemy have offered a bounty on his head. Can they save the birds' nest from almost certain destruction? Will they avoid being caught by the awful Hullabaloos? Only some brave friends and quick thinking stands between them and disaster.

Includes exclusive material: In 'The Backstory' you can test your knowledge of the book, learn about the adventurous author and get some handy facts about birds and boats.

Review:

"In my early teens I read Arthur Ransome's books, Coot Club and The Big Six. They're set in Norfolk and the kids in the books go sailing on the Broads. They impressed me so much that I persuaded my father to take me on holiday to the Norfolk Broads where we had great fun teaching ourselves to sail, all on the impetus of Ransome's books." (Aidan Chambers Observer)

"I read the entire series of Arthur Ransome's children's books as a child and thought they were absolutely fantastic. They were full of adventure, all sorts of exciting things happened and they were truly inspirational" (Ellen MacArthur)

" Coot Club, that great classic of the Norfolk Broads" ( Evening News Norwich)

Book Description:

The fifth book in the adored Swallows and Amazons series: the holidays are put in jeopardy when the Ds and Tom Dudgeon face an enemy endangering the beloved local birds
