557: Arthur Ransome: Missee Lee

The tenth book in the timeless series and a sequel to “Peter Duck”. Nancy Blackett, the terror of the seas, has finally met a real pirate – the tiny, pistol-carrying Missee Lee, who has rescued them after their shipwreck off the coast of China. The only trouble is she wants to keep them forever.

“She’s got a rum job, but she knows how to do it, and to have a job and know how to do it is one of the best things in this life.”

Arthur Ransome “Missee Lee: The Swallows and Amazons in the China Sea”. Originally published in 1941. This edition is published by Red Fox in 2013. Donated to the library by Christopher Boddington in France ❤️
