A first edition of Tim’s Friend Towser, Edward Ardizzone’s iconic tale of a stowaway dog who saves a ship.
Ardizzone, who sometimes signed his work ‘Diz’, was an English painter, print-maker, illustrator and war artist, and the author and illustrator of books, many of them for children.
His celebrated ‘Tim’ series of children’s books spans three decades, and this is one of the series’ most memorable. A lovely story of friendship between a boy and a dog, by one of Britain’s best-loved and most versatile talents.
