Overview

It was a stormy day aboard the S.S. Royal Fusilier when Tim found a stowaway hidden in a lifeboat—a tiny puppy. His only problem was Captain Piper, who loved cats—especially his own—but simply hated dogs.

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.
