A faithful adaptation of Arthur Ransome's beloved children's book, this delightful film follows the adventures of four children on holiday in the Lake District in 1929. The children sail their boat Swallow to an island where they set up camp, only to discover the island is already the territory of two local girls with their own boat, the Amazon. The Swallows and the Amazons go to war, under the watchful eye of the girls' uncle, an old sailor living on a houseboat with his parrot.

    I liked the part when they got the two pirate 's boat

    I didn't liked the part when the girls shot bow and arrows at the swallows because the swallows

    did not know it was their island.

    I liked it because they were brave. I didn't like it because captain flint was naughty. My favorite part was when they were capturing the boats!

    I liked when captain flint walked the plank because it was funny. John is good because he is honest and brave. Flint is bad because he is a pirate.

    I like the part when they became friendly because being friendly will make the world better!

    I don't like it when the pirates were being mean because being mean is not kind!

    I rate it 5 stars because the children were doing team work showing perseverance, resilience and setting themselves a challenge. My heart melted when the swallows were doing team work but when the pirates were being mean I was being worried.
