Description

From climbing and abseiling to canoeing and a Crazy Bucket Race, the adventure holiday promises to be full of action. There's just one problem as far as Tim is concerned: he is hopeless at sports of any kind.

Can Tim survive the horrors of a week absolutely packed with activity? Can his team - the Tigers - be the overall champions? There are some surprises in store for everyone!

Connie's terrible fear of the water is made worse by the fact that her twin baby brother and sister are taking to it like proverbial ducks! Everyone in the family tries to help Connie overcome her phobia, but when they start losing patience, there is a series of strange occurrences.

Everyone thinks Mark is the bravest boy in the whole school. But secretly Mark is afraid of the dark! One night, when he thinks his gran is in trouble, Mark is the only one who can help. But can Mark be brave enough to help his gran in the pitch black night-time?

Young Angela is obsessed with Jimmy Jelly, her favourite TV personality, though the rest of the family can't stand him - that is, until he comes to open a shop in the local shopping mall!

'I'm Tracy Beaker. This is a book all about me. I'd read it if I were you. It's the most incredible dynamic heart-rending story. Honest.'

Tracy is ten years old. She lives in a Children's Home but would like a real home one day, with a real family. Meet Tracy, follow her story and share her hopes for the future in this beautifully observed, touching and often very funny tale, all told in Tracy's own words.

Tracy Beaker is back ... and she's just desperate for a role in her school play. They're performing A Christmas Carol and for one extremely worrying moment, the irrepressible Tracy thinks she might not even get to play one of the unnamed street urchins. But then she is cast in the main role. Can she manage to act grumpy, difficult and sulky enough to play Ebenezer Scrooge? Well, she does have a bit of help on that front from Justine Pain-In-The-Bum Littlewood ...

As Tracy prepares for her big moment, Cam is the one helping her learn her lines. But all Tracy really wants to know is if her film-star mum will make it back from Hollywood in time to watch her in her starring role.

This hilarious and heartbreaking new story from the bestselling, award-winning, Jacqueline Wilson, follows her most popular character through ups and downs, laughs and tears. Fifteen years on from her first appearance on the page, Tracy Beaker is as vibrant and entertaining as ever.

New twins have arrived in the family and Connie is in despair - until Nurse Meade arrives and gives her two tiny blue glass beads. When Connie twiddles with the beads, magical things begin to happen.

Review quote

'Weaves plenty of plot strands in a very short space, and leaves us smiling at the end. Which is definitely the way to do it.' -- The Times 'Wilson's solid writing and Hicks' enthusiastic narration make an excellent combination.' -- AudioFile Magazine 'An appealing mix of events and reactions that are both entertaining and moving. A book that lingers in the mind long after it is put down.' -- The Guardian 'Funny and entertaining ... I'd definitely recommend this book and give it 5 out of 5 stars!' -- TBK 'An excellent, fast-moving story, full of humour.' -- The Good Book Guide 'Tracy is lively and spirited, and her narrative funny and moving.' -- The Bookseller 'A heartwarming story of one of the UK's most favoured children's characters.' -- Headteacher Update 'Jacqueline Wilson's easy, humorous style deals lightly with a serious problem. Many children who share Tim's agonies will perhaps take courage from this entertaining story.' -- The School Librarian 'Told in the zany, entirely convincing voice of Tracy Beaker herself ... The strains of communal life with other children, rivalries and friendships and jokes, all spring to life.' -- The Sunday Times 'It is a familiar situation, and Jacqueline Wilson handles it with understanding and humour.' -- Junior Bookshelf 'A breath of fresh air. It is entertaining yet tender but by no means sentimental when it confronts the need we all have for commitment in relationships, for trust, for love ... A real bonus is that the book genuinely celebrates the act of writing - and not by preaching, I promise.' -- The School Librarian
