In this hugely enjoyable sequel to Cliffhanger, only child Tim and his fun friend Biscuits join Tim's rather strait-laced parents for a holiday in Wales.
Everything goes well until until two bullies, known as Prickle-Head and Pinch-Face, decide to spoil the boys' fun. Hand-written entries from Tim and Biscuits' diaries open each chapter, charting the mounting tension as their relaxing holiday turns into a lively adventure, and Tim tries to avoid the bullies, cope with his over-protective mum, and keep the peace between his girlfriend - the extrovert Kelly - and Biscuits.
This humorous tale sensitively highlights issues such as friendship and bullying.
