Get “Good Little Ship” and “We Didn’t Mean to Go to Sea” together for just £20

Don’t miss out on our special offer to get the definitive stories that feature Nancy Blackett and explore her history together for just £20.

Arthur Ransome’s story of “We Didn’t Mean to Go to Sea” is the seventh “Swallows and Amazons” book and needs little introduction, having regularly collected reviews similar to “surely the best children’s book ever written” ever since it was first published just over eighty years ago in November 1937, and featuring Nancy Blackett in a starring role as the Goblin.

Marking that anniversary is “Good Little Ship: Arthur Ransome, Nancy Blackett and the Goblin”, the newly-published definitive story of Nancy Blackett, as told by Peter Willis, President of the Nancy Blackett Trust, which highlights the history of Nancy Blackett’s rescue and restoration, as well as her literary legacy and connections via Arthur Ransome and the story that she inspired, “We Didn’t Mean to Go to Sea”.

Our special offer of £20 for both books is available exclusively from our Swallows and Amazons Shop, and, as always, proceeds go towards the never-ending care of Nancy Blackett herself.
