A 1001 CBYMRBYGU.I came away from this old story of Tim, a child who goes off to sea, with several observations:1. Parents were more lenient in the old days.

Edward Ardizzone is far and away my favorite author of picture books. I love both his illustrations and Tim's adventures. They are like Tintin books for a younger audience. But my very favorite Ardizzone book is Sarah and Simon and No Red Paint.
