First published between 1936 and 1977, Edward Ardizzone's classic Little Tim books have been loved by generations of children for their spirited adventures and totally matter-of-fact tellings by a storyteller who spoke straight to children's imaginations.

Overview

One dark and stormy day, Tim and Ginger found a little girl, Charlotte, washed up on the beach. Who was she? Where had she come from? They didn't know - and neither did she!

First published between 1936 and 1977, Edward Ardizzone's classic Little Tim books have been loved by generations of children for their spirited adventures and totally matter-of-fact tellings by a storyteller who spoke straight to children's imaginations. As Maurice Sendak has said, "The opening lines of the very first story were a droll Ishmael-like call to adventure that gave great promise of wonderful things to come."

We are proud to bring Little Tim to a new generation of readers.

Tim and his family become very fond of the girl that he and Ginger rescue from the sea, and everyone--or almost everyone--is unhappy when she is taken away by her guardian.

Eleanor Farjeon
Told and pictured by an adult genius [who] knows what childhood feels like when it is sad, glad and victorious.
Maurice Sendak
Some of the saltiest and most satisfying picture books created during the last generation.

    How Charlotte came to be part of the Tim stories

    This is one of a very attractive series of books about a little English boy who loves to go to sea. Here Tim and his friend Ginger rescue an unconscious little girl, brought in by the tide. When she awakes in Tim's house she finds that she has lost her memory. They call her Charlotte and Tim's mother teaches her housework, which Charlotte enjoys. Her guardian, Aunt Agatha arrives, Charlotte regains her memory, and returns to her wealthy home with her guardian. There she is bored and eventually returns to live with Tim and his parents. When Tim's schoolmates tease him for having a girl friend he fights them. In the end Tim and Ginger entertain Charlotte with stories of their adventures and she never tires of listening to them. Although today's Charlotte might forsake housework and lead the boys in seafaring adventures, this book, first published in 1951, does accurately reflect the attitudes toward women at that time. Large type, uncrowded page layout with colorful and black and white illustrations and adventurous content make these books attractive to boys, and girls too, who are beginning to read independently. The reader also is treated to a glimpse of the English seacoast scene and life there. These are fantasy adventures. Enjoy!
