Books by Arthur Ransome
Arthur Ransome is one of Britain's best-loved authors of children's books - but he hid a very dramatic secret. To his relatives, Ransome was the kindly, quiet old man whose cosy, golden tales about plucky children would enchant generations of readers. The charm and appeal of his classic Swallows and Amazons still shines brightly enough now to inspire a new film version of the Lake District adventure. He also had tea with Trotsky and took on first Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin in chess. The intrepid Walker and Blackett kids from Swallows and Amazons would have been proud of his cunning and ingenuity.
A new adaptation of the classic is coming, but its author called the s version 'a ghastly mess'. When the BBC announced plans to recreate the classic outdoor children's sailing adventure Swallows and Amazons it was hailed as a blockbusting antidote to the health and safety culture of the mollycoddled video-game generation.

Swallows and Amazons is the first book in the Swallows and Amazons series by English author Arthur Ransome ; it was first published in , with the action taking place in the summer of in the Lake District. At the time, Ransome had been working as a journalist with the Manchester Guardian , but decided to become a full-time author rather than go abroad as a foreign correspondent. He did continue to write part-time for the press, however. The book was inspired by a summer spent by Ransome teaching the children of his friends, the Altounyans, to sail. Three of the Altounyan children's names are adopted directly for the Walker family. Ransome and Ernest Altounyan bought two small dinghies called Swallow and Mavis.
