The publisher reckons...
Arthur Ransome's classic story, set in the Lake District, where John, Susan, Titty and Roger sail down the lake from the farm where their mother is staying, to camp on a deserted island. There they meet Nancy and Peggy, who have a boat of their own and challenge them to war.
And what do you think?
Arthur Ransome was a prolific writer of children's books. Born in Leeds in 1884, it was his father, a nature-loving history professor, who inspired his love of the outdoors and nurtured a passion for fishing. As a child he enjoyed active, outdoor holidays

This book has to be one of the best I've read for ages! It is very well written. My favourite part is when the four children find out that there are already people on the island and when they capture their boats.

The book was excellent. I loved every moment of it. It is a must read.
