When Peter sees the model ship in the shop window he wants it than anything else on Earth But this is no ordi. When my mother and grandparents when on sabbatical in Nottingham they lived next door to Hilda Lewis who gave my family several copies the book came out in 1939 Years later when I was little my mother pulled this book out and it became one of my most beloved and cherished books It is one of the most enchanting tales I will ever read Though I haven t read it in years seeing as it lives on my mum s bookshelf and not my own I can recall it to memory clearly The story of Peter and his brother and sisters is timeless It travels through ancient Egypt Normandy England the Norse Gods and several other places and times The language is beautiful and just is filled with love and joy I recently discovered the book was reprinted in 1998 Perhaps I can get myself a copy

The Ship That Flew

Nary model The ship takes Peter and the other children on magical flights wherever they ask to go Time after. I don t even know couldn t guess how many times I took this book out of the library when I was a kid It went home with me over and over and over again It s actually a little disturbing to me to hold it in a brand new paperback instead of in the worn library bound hardcover that I cherished as a child but I m thrilled that it s back in printI grew up waiting for magic on every corner My favourites were this lovely little book from Hilda Lewis ANYTHING by E Nesbit and of course all of Edgar Eager booksNow it s time past time to share this treasure with my girls I bought it for Caroline for Christmas in 2010 but she hadn t read it yet so here it is for us in British History I can t wait to read about the Normans with the girls after covering that part of history this week I think they ll have a richer appreciation of the story than I ever didIt s an absolute joy to share these childhood treasures with my girls

Time the magic ship takes them on different exciting adventures to different countries and to different times. I read this book in middle school while waiting for the next Harry Potter If you are able to find a copy of it in a library or a thrift store grab it because it s amazing It s similar to The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe in that there are four children and they go on adventures Let s just say the ship also brought me to places and times as I read it uite an incredibly fantasy book that will certainly stir up your imagination
