Topsy and Tim Go for Gold by Jean Adamson

Topsy and Tim find fun and adventure in the real world. Their engaging stories are reassuring for young children having first experiences of their own. 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.

This lovely new story is ideal for children who will be sports-mad in the year
of the Olympics! Every new-look Topsy and Tim story features a puzzle spread at the
back of the book.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
