553: Arthur Ransome: Peter Duck

The third book in the timeless series. The Swallows and Amazons are sailing with Nancy and Peggy’s Uncle Jim (better known as Captain Flint) when their hired deckhand tells them a tale of his younger days – a tale to set pulses racing and hopes shooting sky-high. Soon their boat is on its way to a Caribbean treasure hunt and they find themselves up against shark, storm, earthquake – and the vilest pirate who ever eavesdropped at a porthole.

“And he wished he could go to sea once more and make another voyage before it was too late.”

Arthur Ransome “Peter Duck: A Treasure Hunt in the Caribbees”. Originally published in 1932. This edition is published by Red Fox in 2013. Donated to the library by Christopher Boddington in France ❤️
