    3.

    20.

    21. I loved the fact that Jacqueline Wilson wrote from a boys point of view I had read this some time ago and re read it out loud on holiday to my children It takes something to hold the attention of a twelve year old boy and an eight year old girl at the same time and to be honest I loved reading it We flew through it Tim doesn t want to go on an adventure holiday He doesn t feel very adventurous at all Luckily he meets Biscuits who enjoys, well eating biscuits and isn t at all self conscious about [...]

    22. I have read this book several times when I was younger, to the extent that when I reread it today I remembered a lot of it It is quite charming, one should not forget the particular age group that it was intended for It is also quite short I read it in approximately ten minutes but then again I am what you might call a slowpoke reader , and even as a boy I found it relatively short This is why I gave it 3 5 as, in my opinion, if it had been longer with many episodes at the Adventure Camp and wi [...]

    23. Dame Jacqueline Wilson a very deserved title is, in my opinion, the best contemporary children s writer She writes perfectly, in content, theme, style and accessibility for children from aged 6 to 13 ish of course this varies among children She writes flawlessly for children, I could not find a single fault.She is never patronizing and introduces young people to important life issues such as love, poverty, friendship, adolescence, separated parents, illnesses and so much , in a manner that is ac [...]

    24. My best friend Lee actually recommended this to me he was quite embarrassed about reading a girl s book, but he though it was pretty good This was a sweet little book that I read in about an hour I was unsure at first but as the story got under way, I enjoyed it and connected with Tim.My absolute favourite part was the section where the children all have to do this obstacle course thing They had to walk on drainpipes which were over a river, and then tip the water in a carton which was on the ot [...]
