Clara E. Taylor chapter 1 . 8/25/2014
This is perfect! Do a chapter about Swallowdale.
Fortes Fortuna Adiuvat chapter 1 . 7/25/2014
I love these books but damn the stupid health and safety people. I want to have fun not stay stuck indoors.
OneSizeFitsAll chapter 1 . 7/15/2014
This had me laughing and crying at the same time... I'm so glad Arthur Ransome wrote his books when he did.
sazzle chapter 1 . 6/24/2014
you forgot captain flint getting arrested for being a paedophile; nancy getting an ASBO for the firework incident and the swallows being chased off the island by national park staff for illegal firelighting.
Life was so much simpler in those days...
BatFink chapter 1 . 12/7/2013
Wellllll then. My childhood is ruined...
This is horrible, very well written and an incredibly good comparison to modern day life but, but, but they're... I can't even think straight.
Rose and Psyche chapter 1 . 5/8/2012
I laughed so hard I choked. The iPhone set me off and I couldn't stop.

Though its really not funny...though it is...

I've more or less had a pocket knife since I was eight. I did slice bits of myself off with it, but I did far worse with the potato peeler (and that wasn't even sharp).

I firmly believe every kid ought to have a pocket knife. I'm a passionate woodworker now and it came painfully.
