'Timmy was a paddle-boat, sound as a gong' – but he had been left to rust in the sleepy quays when paddles went out of fashion. Written in the 1950s and only recently rediscovered, Ted Hughes's poem about a tug that escapes his moorings and explores the high seas originally accompanied a story that was conceived and illustrated in watercolours by his friend Jim Downer. Timmy the Tug is presented here in a facsimile of the original manuscript. Age 4+
