    1. This is the story of Tim who is reluctantly sent on an adventure holiday by his parents. Sports are not Tim's favourite pastime so when he finds out he will be climbing, abseiling, canoeing amoung others he is not pleased and sends his parents a postcard as soon as he arrives asking them to come collect him immediately.Each day brings with it a new activity and Tim unfortunately is disasterous at each and every one of them. He forgets the vital instruction of holding onto the rope and finds hims [...]


    2. Cliffhanger is the story of a young boy called Tim whose pushy father enrolls him in an adventure holiday with a group of children his own age. Tim is not enthusiastic at all about attending the adventure camp as he is better at puzzles and schoolwork than he is at sports and outdoor games so he is quite apprehensive about attending the camp and spending the week away from home.Jacqueline Wilson uses humour throughout the book and puts Tim in some awkward situations that young readers would find [...]


    3. Cliffhanger was written by Jacqueline Wilson initially as a television script, she enjoyed the story so much that it was turned into a book.It is about a 9 year old boy called Tim who is going on an adventure holiday. This should be an exciting prospect but Tim feels otherwise, he isn’t good at sports and he doesn’t want to leave without his precious Walter bear.When he goes on his adventure holidays he meets a few characters such as Biscuits, his lovely new friend who loves to eat biscuits [...]


    4. Cliffhanger is about Tim, a young boy who is cajoled by his father to attend an adventure holiday. Tim isn't very good at sports and other physical activities and doesn't really enjoy them neither so he is not keen to go on the adventure holiday. The book follows Tim's struggles to overcome his lack of sporting prowess as he faces the challenges of taking part in a game similar to rounders, abseiling, canoeing and finally the crazy bucket race. Despite his lack of ability Tim continues to try hi [...]


    5. As a child, I remember reading many Jacqueline Wilson books, but the one book that has stuck in my head is Cliffhanger. Although this book is not as well-known as her other books, such as The Story of Tracy Beaker and Double Act, I have always enjoyed reading this book as it reminds me of my childhood. This story describes the journey Tim goes through when his dad signs him up for an adventure holiday. Tim is useless at sport and struggles to settle in, especially when one of his team members ma [...]


    6. Cliffhanger is a book I remember reading during the summer holidays as a child and really enjoyed. Cliffhanger is about Tim who really does not enjoy sports or physical activity and doesn’t think that he is any good but is forced to go to an Adventure Centre by his father during the holidays. Before he arrived, he was dreading taking part in any of the activities and really didn’t want the other children to laugh at him. When it was time to leave, he didn’t want to go!Cliffhanger demonstra [...]


    7. Not a great book, but it did make my 6 year old excited for her first summer camp experience and taught her some interesting new vocabulary.



    8. I thought there was going to be a cliffhanger so disappointed in it I think they should improve by making it more dangerous,even though I thought Tim was going to die.


    9. This is a very charming book by Jacqueline Wilson, which focuses on a nine year old boy, Tim. Tim is an only child whose father feels an adventure holiday might make him more sporty. Tim's main hobbies include watching television and doing puzzles and is more of an academic student! A week of abseiling, canoeing and games is not his idea of fun! The story sees Tim entering camp without a chance to object, except through comical postcards home, the first written half an hour into his stay. He mee [...]


    10. I decided to re-read this book recently and finished it in fifteen minutes I loved Jacqueline Wilson growing up, however I remember this being a book I didn't constantly reach for to re-read. It's for much younger readers and doesn't really hold a story that I love or want to re-read, however it's still a good book. The story 'Cliffhanger' is about a boy called Tim who goes on an adventure holiday and meets a friend called Biscuits. Tim is not a sporty guy and hates any movement or any activity [...]


    11. I found Cliffhanger by Jacqueline Wilson a very exciting and humorous book to read. It focuses on a nine year old boy called Tim who is forced by his Father to spend some time in an adventure camp during the summer holidays. As Tim is not a very sporty child, he is nervous and not looking forward to the camp. He expresses his feelings through short postcards home during his stay at camp at the beginning of each chapter, the first postcard home being sent without a half an hour! Each day Tim face [...]


    12. This exciting and humorous book by Jacqueline Wilson is about a young boy named Tim who is forced to face up to his worst fears. Tim, who is not interested in sports or adventures of any kind, is sent on an adventure holiday which promises to be full of action. A nervous Tim begins his holiday feeling lonely as he realises he has left his favourite teddy, Walter Bear, at home. He shares a room with two other boys: Giles, who is very sporty and keen to tackle lots of adventures; and Biscuits, who [...]


    13. This is a great book by Jacqueline Wilson, exploring the differing viewpoints of children being a carer, a looked after child and experiencing bullying. Cliffhanger concerns a young boy Tim who is not a fan or sports or physical activities, however his father forces him to take part in an Adventure Centre during the holidays. Although he was dreading the trip and feared the other children laughing at him, by the end he enjoys it so much he doesn’t want to leave. During his time at the centre h [...]


    14. Tim, a kid that would much rather stay at home playing games or doing math wanted to just stay home and do exactly that but one day he finds himself in an adventure camp where they do stuff that he is absolutely hopeless at like abseiling or sports. At first he hates the place and would call his mom and beg her to come and take him but it was no use. So after suffering for a while and getting teased by other kids he meets his new friend biscuits who he really likes then after doing some activiti [...]

    16. A delightful story about Tim, who would much rather be watching television, is sent by his parents on an adventure holiday. Tim has never been any good at sports or games but now he has a go at lots of activities, such as abseiling, canoeing and completing obstacle courses, finds new friends and becomes a hero! Another great story by a fantastic author, highly recommended. Teachers could easily use this book to support work in PSHE, helping children acknowledge their strengths and being willing [...]


    17. When tim thinks its a perfect time to stay at home and play video games his dad tells him that he is getting sent to an adventure camp, but the only problem is that he is completely useless at sports of any kind. So eventually when he arrives at the place he meets his roommate Giles who is always mocking him. But then he meets biscuits, a kid that doesn't stop eating but is very friendly. But even biscuits can do some sports when tim is still lagging behind, but after a while, even Tim gets used [...]



    18. Roman popularne Džeklin Vilson, namenjen je urastu od 7 do 10 godina i ovoga puta iz perspektive dečaka bavi se temama tipičnim za opus ove autorke.Preporučujemo ga za čitanje pred prvo odvajanje od kuće, odlazak na rekreativnu nastavu ili ekskurziju, ali i svim fanovima Džeklin Vilson.



    19. An adventure packed holiday is surely any 9 year olds dream holiday right? Not for Tim Parsons! Great at everything else Tim, in his own opinion, is simply hopeless at sports! When he finds out his dad is serious about sending him on what could only be a nightmare holiday for Tim he has every hope his mother can get him out of it. Unfortunately, before he can even say ‘adventure holiday’ he finds himself abandoned at the centre all alone and without the comfort of his loving Walter bear.As t [...]


    20. I was listening to an interview with Jacqueline Wilson, who was my favourite author as a child, on the radio and decided to give some of her books a re-read.I remember really enjoying this book as a child and enjoyed reading it again now from the point of view of someone who works with children.The story is about a nine-year-old boy called Tim whose dad signs him up for a children's adventure holiday which Tim, who is shy, bookish and not at all sporty, is determined not to enjoy. At first Tim f [...]



    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 [...]


    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 more episodes at the Adventure Ca [...]


    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 more, in a mann [...]


    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 th [...]


    25. Cliffhanger tells the story of a timid, sport hating boy named Tim. His worst nightmare comes true when his pushy father decides that he should go to summer camp, a sports based one. As the story unravels we meet the horrid character Giles, who takes it upon himself to constantly put Tim down, making him feel even worst than he already did. But, all is not lost as Tim meets the loveable Biscuits, a larger boy who too has little interest in sports, rather finding interest in foods of all kind!The [...]
