Swallows and Amazons, one of the most popular of Arthur Ranzome's classic stories of children and boats, is one of the best Lake District novels of all time. It is not an exaggeration to say that Ransome's stories were as popular in his era as those of J.K. Rowling are today.

A new big-screen version of the novel is to be released on 19th August. I really hope the film-makers have done justice to this classic story, but if the trailers are anything to go by there is a good chance that they have.
