We Didn't Mean to Go to Sea by Arthur Ransome
Book Description'Like to spend a night in the Goblin?' The Swallows are staying on the Suffolk coast while they wait for their father to return home from China. But although the harbour is bursting with bobbing yachts, barges and steamers, this year there's no chance of any sailing for the landlocked Swallows. That is until they rescue young Jim Brading and his boat the Goblin from a sticky situation and to their delight are recruited as crew members. Mother agrees they can go, on one condition - they absolutely must not sail out past Beach End Buoy and into the open sea...

Coot Club, Paperback / softback (October 2015)

Picts and the Martyrs, Paperback (March 2015)» View all books by Arthur Ransome
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.
US Kirkus Review » Probably we are unduly partial to Ransome, but it seems to us that he is consistently tops in his stories of children and boats - and this is good Ransome. The same Walker tribe - John, Susan, Roger and Titty, are the central figures, and an unpredictable accident sets them adrift, in a new friend's outter, and against odds of storm and fog, cross the North Sea to Holland. There's more than due quota of nautical terminology, so it is ideal for the budding skippers. (Kirkus Reviews)
