Little Tim lives by the sea. Two of his best buddies, the old boatman and Captain McFee, spin such exciting yarns about the sailor's life that Tim's determined to cast away. But his parents insist he's much too young. His break comes sooner than he thought when he's accidentally-on-purpose left behind during a visit to a steamer. Little did he expect the hard work, stormy sea, and sinking ship to come! First published in 1936, Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain features gorgeous watercolors and a lively story that have enthralled generations of readers.
