    Really, I like all of the series with "Missy Lee" and "Peter Duck" at the bottom of my personal list. It's so nice to have them on kindle, as well as in paper. I would give this 5 stars, for my paper copy.

    Unfortunately, the Kindle edition does not include the illustrations, although the captions are incl

    A great adventure book set on the Norfolk Broads in England. This book is part of the Swallows city people are causing distress to the general boating population and in particular the Coot Club who are concerned when the city people moor over a rare birds nest. High adventure starts with boats being cast adrift up and down the river. Things escalate and the police are no help solving the crimes so its up to the

    This book transported me to the rivers, and life on the Norfolk Broads. The people are all
    very friendly (except for the rowdy townsfolk who don't belong) and the boys' skill in their boats seemed to be real. The story unfolds along the rivers and broads, with beautiful scenery and

    Recommended as a good read by the late Phil Bolger, I was excited to find it available on. Phil shared that it had captured his imagination at age 10 and was still 'a good read' at age 80. I couldn't agree. I'm looking forward to sharing the book with my grandsons while sailing.

    This book has no mention of the s or the Swallows, but it does give us in the way of the D's introduced in the previous book. Dick and Dot become able bodied seamen at the end of a very enjoyable adventure river cruising. :)

    Pure nostalgia for me. Loved the book as much this time round as much as I did when I read my brother's copy 60 years ago. Arthur Ransome was an environmentalist before it became fashionable. My lasting regret is that I didn't get to

    After reading this book I HAD to visit Norfolk and sail a yacht. And I did 62 years ago. I went with a school party but I was one of the few to fully apreciate the journey because we sailed past all the places mentioned in the story. My shipmates did not even notice the black sheep on the lawn of Horning Vicarage or rec

    I had not read Coot Club for about 65 years but it is of course just as I remember it. The magical Norfolk Broads, Arthur Ransome's encyclopeadic knowledge of boats, fishing, bird watching and his hatred of egg collectors are all there. If he were alive today he would make his mark quite possibly as a Green MP! The large cast of children is finely drawn, each individual being clearly differentiated. Of course I'm nosta

    This is my favourite Ransome story. I live in Norfolk and have lived near Beccles. The Broads are magical and still much as described in the book. As I read I can visualise the places.The story is as enjoyable now as it was 50 years ago when I first read it.Thank you Arthur Ransome.

    This book was delivered on time in good condition. Thank you. The series of books by Arthur Ransome is excellent. It's a pity many of todays youngsters do not have the same freedom and space to have adventures.

Coot Club (Swallows and s Series)

It all started with a coot’s nest Dorothy and Dick meet Tom Dodgeon Port and Starboard and three pirate salvagers – all members of the “Coot Club” Bird Protection Society When one of the coot’s nests is disturbed by a shipful of “Hullabaloos” – rude holiday boaters – trouble begins Frantic chas. Fortunately we re reading them in order so we knew the D s from Winter Holiday Otherwise I d have been kind of sad at a Swallows and s book with almost no mention of either set of children It s odd to think that when originally published it likely seemed that the series had moved on completely away from the original children little knowing how they d return for so many booksThe descriptions of riverine sailing so long ago are magical when not only did the rivers carry a lot of commerce but mostly still in sailing vessels timing the tides through the bridges because tugs and motors weren t routine

Ur sailing about the waters of East Anglia” –Daily Mail “There is satisfactory realism about all that happens to the Coot Club and the atmosphere and detail of the odd part of England where they navigate are conveyed with a charm and accuracy that only this author perhaps could bring to bear” –Guardian. After reading this book I HAD to visit Norfolk and sail a yacht And I did 62 years ago I went with a school party but I was one of the few to fully apreciate the journey because we sailed past all the places mentioned in the story My shipmates did not even notice the black sheep on the lawn of Horning Vicarage or recognise the stump of a windmill as being built in the ruins of St Benets Abbey The mysteries of sailing in narrow waters and knowing how to avoid running aground tricks for getting through Potter Heigham bride were all things I had learned from this book And the knowledge was not appreciated by my older shipmates who had not read it Every mile of river or lake was the place where events in the story had happened thus enhancing my enjoyment of the voyageBut OH DEAR my grandchildren could not be bothered to try to read the book When I tried to encourage to read it they would look up briefly from their smartphones and then be lost again Even the books they HAD been persuaded to read seem to me to very thin on real content and certainly would not provide the wide ranging education provided by Arthur Ransome
