  • "Once more the Swallows and the Amazons have a magnificent exploring adventure, one more Mr Arthur Ransome has kept a complete record of their experiences, terrors, triumphs, and set it down with the cunning that casts a spell over new children and old"

    Times Literary Supplement
  • "This time the Walker children are 'marooned' on an island somewhere in England, and for their adventures there is but one word - enchanting!"

    Sunday Times
  • "Many of the adventures were set in the Lakes, but my favourite is the one set at the other end of the country: Secret Water"
