In Topsy and Tim Go for Gold, the twins take part in their school sport's day. They take part in all sorts of races, and try to prove who is the fastest! A trusted and well-loved pair who can help guide parents and children through 'first experiences', Topsy and Tim books have been beautifully updated with contemporary artwork. Topsy and Tim remain instantly recognisable to parents while in a fresh style that will appeal to a new generation of fans. These wonderful books deserve a place on every child's bookshelves.

of the Olympics! Every new-look Topsy and Tim story features a puzzle spread at the
back of the book.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
