Winter Holiday, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


'Well,' said Nancy, 'You know what it's like. Dark at teatime and sleeping indoors: nothing ever happens in the winter holidays.' Nothing - except a polar expedition, full of mountain rescues, blizzards, igloos, ice sailing and heroic work amidst the frozen wastes.

For Dick and Dorothea, newcomers to the lake, meeting up with the Swallows and Amazons sweeps them into a wild adventure where they must prove their worth to the team.

Review by

Excellent yarn set in the arctic wastes of lake district, when mumps extend school holidays, and allow chance for a crack at the north pole.
