Winter Holiday

Winter Holiday

By Arthur Ransome

Winter holidays can be just as fun as summer with the Swallows and Amazons!

'You know what it's like. Dark at teatime and sleeping indoors: nothing ever happens in the winter holidays.'

Or so Nancy thinks. Then the lake ices over completely and the Swallows and Amazons, along with Dick and Dorothea - ‘the D’s’ - plan a race to find the North Pole. How will they reach it if they can’t sail? By sledges of course! But when a blizzard blows up and there is a mix up about signals, the D’s disappear into the Arctic night. Disaster looms. Can the Swallows and Amazons save their friends?

BACKSTORY: Crack the Swallows and Amazons' code and learn all about the real Arctic exploration that inspired this book.
