Bored with his schoolwork, Tim longs to be at sea again, when who should appear but Captain McFee! Back on board ship, Tim befriends Ginger, the first ship's boy.

Soon the two lads are on their way to new adventures on the salty main, including a might storm and a darting rescue. First published in 1949, this popular picture book showcases Edward Ardizzone's vibrant watercolors and exciting narrative.
