80th anniversary edition of the first title in the much-loved Little Tim series, beautifully produced in the same size as one of the first editions, with original hand-lettering. A young boy wants to be a sailor, but his parents say he is much too young. Tim grabs the chance to stow away on a steamer, but little does he expect the hard work, stormy sea and sinking ship to come! Little Tim's adventures at sea have delighted generations of children ever since the first book was published in 1936. Edward Ardizzone, who illustrated over 170 books in his lifetime, received the prestigious Kate Greenaway medal for Tim All Alone in 1956.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is pure escapism and it is refreshing to find a book of such quality surviving and succeeding through generations of readers but still being published today amongst the buzz and fizz of novelty books || An exquisite reissue of Edward Ardizzone's classic 1936 picture book, which is sure to enchant a new generation of readers || The combination of exciting action, vivid characters and fabulously detailed illustrations still make the Little Tim series enthralling. || This charming and ultimately reassuring story is a reissue of Edward Ardizzone's classic 1936 picture book. The exquisite illustrations have stood the test of time and are sure to enchant a new generation of children and their parents. || Tim has the sort of adventures that every child needs, unshakably rooted in the real world, but unhampered by interference from anxious adults. His stirring but comforting maritime experiences are those a child might dream of - full of storms, shipwrecks and fascinating knots. He deals doggedly with dangers, never stints on chores below deck and always gets home after the voyage. || This is the first book I ever read (age 5) and it started my passion for sea stories. Little Tim stows away on a ship. He makes friends with the captain but then a storm blows up and the ship starts to sink. The crew put off in the lifeboats, leaving only the captain (who refuses to go) and Tim (who's been forgotten). I remember my fear as a small boy when I thought Tim was going to drown. I won't tell you what happens. Read it for yourself. It's a charming book and beautifully illustrated by the author.
