Description

Across frozen mountains and stormy seas, through steamy jungles and dusty savannahs, the classic heroes and modern-day adventurers featured here battle against nature, unexpected enemies - and sometimes even themselves. This carefully selected collection combines classic stories of daring and achievement with contemporary tales by writers such as Ray Bradbury, Jill Paton Walsh and Clive King himself. Illustrated throughout with dramatic line drawings, this is a fantastic introduction to many great writers and a great present for any action-loving child.show more

About Andrew Davidson

Clive King is the author of several novels for children, of which Stig of the Dump has become a modern classic. In all his books he draws on his own experiences - from travelling the world while in the Navy (from the Arctic to Australia and from Iceland to Japan) and from, later, teaching English in Syria, the Lebanon, Bangladesh and India - to create tales of adventure from all over the globe.show more
