Product description

A brilliant seaside story from Jacqueline Wilson. Tim is thrilled when his kind but fuddy-duddy parents let him take his friend Biscuits on holiday. They’re having a great time – until the arrival of Prickle-Head and Pinch-Face, two horrible big bullies who start to pick on them. Then bouncy, tough Kelly turns up in a caravan with her fun-loving mum and her mum’s tattooed boyfriend. Kelly insists on calling Tim her boyfriend, and together the three stand up to the bullies. But what will happen when the friends fall out – and awful Prickle-Head and Pinch-Face start to get the upper hand?

Winner of the Sheffield Children’s Book Award.

    I’ve read this book over 4 times, I can’t put it down. My worst character is Prickle-head because he’s mean and tries to act cool. My favourite character is Biscuits because he’s soft and I’d love to have him as my friend. I would give this book 4 stars.
