Coot Club (Swallows and Amazons) Read ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF It all started with a coot s nest Dorothy and Dick meet Tom Dodgeon Port and Starboard and three pirate salvagers all members of the Coot Club Bird Protection Society When one of the coot s nests is disturbed by a shipful of Hullabaloos rude holiday boaters trouble begins Frantic chases calamito After reading this book I HAD to visit Norfolk and sail a yacht And I did 62 years ago I went with a school party but I was one of the few to fully apreciate the journey because we sailed past all the places mentioned in the story My shipmates did not even notice the black sheep on the lawn of Horning Vicarage or recognise the stump of a windmill as being built in the ruins of St Benets Abbey The mysteries of sailing in narrow waters and knowing how to avoid running aground tricks for getting through Potter Heigham bride were all things I had learned from this book And the knowledge was not appreciated by my older shipmates who had not read it Every mile of river or lake was the place where events in the story had happened thus enhancing my enjoyment of the voyageBut OH DEAR my grandchildren could not be bothered to try to read the book When I tried to encourage to read it they would look up briefly from their smartphones and then be lost again Even the books they HAD been persuaded to read seem to me to very thin on real content and certainly would not provide the wide ranging education provided by Arthur Ransome
