Ur sailing about the waters of East Anglia” –Daily Mail “There is satisfactory realism about all that happens to the Coot Club and the atmosphere and detail of the odd part of England where they navigate are conveyed with a charm and accuracy that only this author perhaps could bring to bear” –Guardian. Pure nostalgia for me Loved the book as much this time round as much as I did when I read my brother s copy 60 years ago Arthur Ransome was an environmentalist before it became fashionable My lasting regret is that I didn t get to see the Norfolk Broads when I was in the UK 16 years ago

    Fortunately we're reading them in order, so we knew the D's from Winter Holiday. Otherwise I'd have been kind of sad at a Swallows and s book with almost no mention of either set of children. (It's odd to think that when originally published, it likely seemed that the series had moved on completely away from the original children little knowing how they'd return for so many books!)

    Really, I like all of the series with "Missy Lee" and "Peter Duck" at the bottom of my personal list. It's so nice to have them on kindle, as well as in paper. I would give this 5 stars, for my paper copy.

    After reading this book I HAD to visit Norfolk and sail a yacht. And I did 62 years ago. I went with a school party but I was one of the few to fully apreciate the journey because we sailed past all the places mentioned in the story. My shipmates did not even notice the black sheep on the lawn of Horning Vicarage or recognise the stump of a windmill as being built in the ruins of St Benets Abbey. The mysteries of sailing in narr
