When I was about eight I was given Swallows and Amazon to read and I could not do it. After Roald Dahl imaginative books, I found S&A pedestrian. Recently I thought I would give the book another go. This is not the most ground breaking book I have ever read but it appeals to me more now, than it did when I was a child. I was not allowed to be a pirate as a child as I was too busy being mum’s crutch. Now I can be a pirate and have adventures and I do. I say read it and relive the pirate in all of us.
