A brief update: my stocking contained NO films this Christmas. :)

My wife, for some (inexplicable and quite frankly shocking) reason, has never read Ransome, but she'd clearly listened to my early December wailing and gnashing of teeth.

She HAS, however, read plenty of C.S.Lewis. So, at the time, I'd asked her how she'd feel if the books she'd loved as a girl were to be turned into some action-adventure CGI Big Music outing. Done and dusted in 97 minutes. I think the message hit home.

And on this note ... I had not read the Narnia books as a young 'un, so we read them out loud to each other together, chapter-by-talking-lion-chapter.

As she now 'owes me one', which Ransome novel would the members of Tarboard consider to be the best to undergo this treatment? I have some thoughts, but would love to hear other suggestions.
