Tim can't wait to go on holiday - especially as he gets to bring his friend Biscuits along. But their trip unexpectedly becomes truly, terribly adventurous when an encounter with two local bully-boys threatens to disrupt the fun.

Narrated by Tim and interspersed with revealing, illustrated extracts from Tim and Biscuits's holiday diaries, this is a wondefully enjoyable story from one of the most popular writers around that both girls and boys will love.
