Some of you may have read the children's story 'Bevis', which has been mentioned by a few Ransome scholars as a work that may have inspired the young Ransome or the genre of "outdoor children playing at make-believe" in general.
I've only just realised the author has his old house (near Swindon, UK) turned into a museum, and I wondered if any of you had been there? Do tell me if it is any good.
Personally, I find Bevis to be a boy with all the Roger-ness of Roger turned up to 11, plus all the imagination of Titty turned up to 11, combined with Nancy's expectations of leadership....
