The ship that flew by hilda lewis
The Ship That Flew by Hilda LewisWhen my mother and grandparents when on sabbatical in Nottingham, they lived next door to Hilda Lewis who gave my family several copies (the book came out in 1939). Years later when I was little my mother pulled this book out and it became one of my most beloved and cherished books. It is one of the most enchanting tales I will ever read. Though I havent read it in years (seeing as it lives on my mums bookshelf and not my own), I can recall it to memory clearly. The story of Peter and his brother and sisters is timeless. It travels through ancient Egypt, Normandy England, the Norse Gods and several other places and times. The language is beautiful and just is filled with love and joy. I recently discovered the book was reprinted in 1998. Perhaps I can get myself a copy.
The Ship That Flew
A young boy finds a magic toy boat in a magic shop, and he and his brother and two sisters have all sorts of adventures flying through time in it. I loved it. A predecessor to The Magic Treehouse I thought I had read every children's book known to man, how did this slip past me? It's very much an Edith Nesbit pastiche, but gentle and charming. A lovely read.
