William the bad by Richmal Crompton

"I've often thought it would be fun to run away to sea same as people do in books" said Ginger, expressing the general feeling of reckless despair to which the situation had driven them. "I used to think that" said William, "till I went on the sea. Your even been on the sea?" Ginger admitted that he hadn't. "Well, it's not a bit like what you'd think it is from books" said William. "It gives you a sort of feelin' that you don't find anythin' about in books. After I'd been on the sea I made up my mind that if I ran away I'd sooner set up as a robber than go to sea. I bet robbers never have that sort of feeling that sailors mus' have all the time"
