'Ahoy Ahoy Swallows Ahoy'Have you ever sailed in a boat or built a camp Have you caught trout and cooked it yourself The four Swallows John Susan Titty and Roger return to the lake full of. The second in Arthur Ransome's classic series about a group of children a few groups of children really and their holiday adventures in the great outdoors this delightful novel is than the eual of its predecessor Swallows and s Opening as the four Swallows the Walker children Captain John Mate Susan Able Seaman Titty and Ship's Boy Roger return to the lake eager for another summer of sailing Swallowdale soon shifts focus as two catastrophes one maritime the other familial prevent their complete reunion with their friendly ally adversaries the s Landlocked and unable to spend much time with Captain Nancy and Mate Peggy the Swallows confront a summer stripped of all the delights they had spent a year anticipating Until that is Titty and Roger discover a secret valley the beautiful Swallowdale and another sort of adventure beginsAs with the first entry in the series I was impressed by how engaging Ransome's narrative proved to be given its leisurely pace and lack of sensational incident Everything that occurs the discovery of Swallowdale the Swallows camping out in their new valley stronghold climbing Kanchenjunga as they name a local peak getting lost on a foggy moor is realistically depicted Despite that fact or perhaps because of it the reader is drawn into the story following along with the adventures enjoying the lovely descriptions and taking the good hearted but wholly human children to heartI was also particularly struck while reading Swallowdale by Ransome's understated humor which I found just to my taste The scene in which the Swallows are horrified to witness the s being forced to wear dresses and drive out with their dreaded Great Aunt was uite amusing as was Roger's observation while resident with Young Billy the charcoal burner that dreaming of a certain kind of adventure was one thing but living it uite another All in all a delightful second installment of a series I am now determined to finish I think I may save the next for the winter though

SwallowdaleIned Then they discover a wonderful hidden valley and things take a turn for the betterBACKSTORY Discover the real Swallowdale swot up on seafaring and learn all about the adventurous autho. This is a kid’s adventure book good for ages 8 12 There’s long beautiful descriptions and lots of dialogue making for a long book Story is slow and charming as the four kids sail their ship and explore the islands around them There is a part where Titty tries to make a voodoo doll out of candle grease but of course it just melts in the fire She’s trying to make the great aunt leave her friends’ house but it’s humorous as she’s all worried thinking she burnt up the “GA” 😆 I haven’t read the first one since it wasn’t available at my library so it took a bit to figure out the characters Definitely would recommend reading these in order
