Tim has the sort of adventures that every child needs, unshakably rooted in the real world, but unhampered by interference from anxious adults. His stirring but comforting maritime experiences are those a child might dream of - full of storms, shipwrecks and fascinating knots. He deals doggedly with dangers, never stints on chores below deck and always gets home after the voyage.(Julia Eccleshare 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up)
This is the first book I ever read (age 5) and it started my passion for sea stories. Little Tim stows away on a ship. He makes friends with the captain but then a storm blows up and the ship starts to sink. The crew put off in the lifeboats, leaving only the captain (who refuses to go) and Tim (who's been forgotten). I remember my fear as a small boy when I thought Tim was going to drown. I won't tell you what happens. Read it for yourself. It's a charming book and beautifully illustrated by the author.( Lovereading) About the Author:
