Overview

What Tim liked best at the beach was talking with the old boatman who would tell him all about the sea and ships. But his best friend, Ginger, would always say, "Poof! I have been a sailor boy and know all about the silly old sea," and walk away.

Unfortunately, on the day the old boatman warned about the tides, it would have been better if Ginger had stayed and listened.

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 Ishmaellike 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.

About the Author:
Edward Ardizonne came to England with his family at the age of five. It was these early years, when young Edward and his cousin would skip off from home to spend long days in the docks, that inspired the first Tim book, written by the artist for his own children many years later. Throughout his lifetime, Ardizzone won many awards for his work, including the very first Kate Greenaway Medal for Tim All Alone. He is now regarded as one of the finest children's illustrators of all time. Oxford was the original publisher of the first Tim book in 1936. Now, in these new paperback editions, Ardizonne's classic tales of Tim and his adventures by the sea have been reset and each given a fresh, newly designed cover, bringing Ardizonne, yet once again, to a whole new generation of children.
