I've just read the chapter on CC in Julian Lovelock's 'Swallows, Amazons and Coots'

He describes the book as a "...comic melodrama..." (p92) and later states "Then the comedy of Chapter 23, 'William's Heroic Moment'..." (p99).

In my many readings of CC I've never found it 'comic'.

I well remember reading it the first time and being impressed by how, thanks to William, they are able to get supplies between the two boats and the method used (once again AR explaining how things work.)
