He is remembered as the author of the classic children’s novels The Midnight Folk and The Box of Delights.

When World War I began Masefield went to the Western Front as a medical orderly, later publishing his own account of his experiences. In 1921, Masefield received an Honorary Doctorate of Literature from Oxford University. He also wrote a very large number of dramatic pieces. Most of his dramas were based on themes of Christianity. Amongst his other works are Martin Hyde: The Duke’s Messenger (1910), Jim Davis (1911) and Right Royal (1920).

    Love it

    I love the original Jim Davis. It is a little weird, but it's one of the better older books, and if someone likes adventure and fighting on the water, it is pretty good. Jim Davis likes to build boats and sail them, and in the end one of his friends turnd out to be, well... won' t say. Buy the book though, it's great lots of adventure, very little romance.
    Try writing some better reviews people. Weird doesn't really give anybody good advice.
