    Reviews

    an intelligent, involving, beautifully mounted adaptation

    Trevor Johnstone
    **** Radio Times

    charming, moving, engaging and entertaining

    Catherine Sedgwick
    **** The Upcoming

    Swallows and Amazons reproduces the potted world Ransome wrote about with diligence and sincerity... high adventure in safe hands

    Robbie Collin
    **** The Telegraph

    a charmingly old-fashioned family adventure – one that you can imagine several generations of a family gathering to watch on a rainy grey Sunday afternoon.

    Dave Calhoun
    **** Time Out

    absolutely splendid... I'm going again. With ginger-beer and humbugs
