556: Arthur Ransome: We Didn’t Mean To Go To The Sea

The seventh book in the timeless series. The Swallows are out on the water once again, this time in a bigger boat and on a bigger adventure than ever before. When John, Susan, Titty and Roger find themselves adrift in the treacherous waters of the North Sea, they’re suddenly having a real adventure and only their sailing skills can help them.

“They slept. The night was so calm that it was hard to believe that the “Goblin” was afloat.”
