Pigeon Post by Arthur Ransome
Book DescriptionReunited for the summer, the Swallows and Amazons with Dick and Dorothea launch a prospecting expedition to find the lost gold mine of the high hills above the lake. But the mining camp runs into all sorts of trouble: not only the danger of fire in the drought ridden countryside but also scary encounters with unsafe tunnels. Worst of all is the sinister Squashy Hat, who appears to be a rival prospector and who's certainly a spy - how can they keep working without him discovering what they've found?

Picts and the Martyrs, Paperback (March 2015)
The Ds can't wait to go and stay with Nancy and Peggy in the Lake District during the summer holidays. But when the Amazons' dreadful Great Aunt invites herself to stay too, the summer is threatened with dullness. Staying indoors and reading poetry is not what anyone had in mind.
Missee Lee, Paperback (October 2014)» View all books by Arthur Ransome
The Swallows, Amazons and Captain Flint don't pay much heed to the harbourmaster's friendly warning as they set off for China. They are on a round-the-world voyage aboard the Wild Cat and it's been plain sailing for a hundred ports. But when Gibber, the ship's monkey, accidentally sinks their faithful boat things take a serious turn for the worse.
UK Kirkus Review » Arthur Ransome was the first recipient of the Carnegie Medal in 1936 with Pigeon Post, the second title in the Swallows and Amazons series, which continues to be enjoyed by children today. An unerring gift for telling a good story, peopled with strong and credible characters, has been the key to the books' continued success. (10 yrs +) (Kirkus UK)
