Roger is possibly the most irritating of the leading characters, at least for adult readers, but without him the Swallows might really be a bit bland. Somebody has to prefer motor to sail, to be the grit in the oyster. I suspect that for lots of young boys he has been their favourite.

My own least favourite? I am not sure that I have one among the main protagonists; they are all likeable in their different ways - one of the strengths of AR's writing. Perhaps the most interesting are Nancy, Titty and Dorothea, but even that judgement may be unfair on the others.
