Description

Dirt bike racing, bungee jumping, paragliding, skateboarding. Cheese rolling, extreme ironing and going over the Niagra Falls in a barrel (yes, really!). There are all kinds of crazy and not-so-crazy extreme sports. Here's your chance to get the facts. It's OK doing extreme sports when you want to, but what about when you have to - to survive? Read the story 'The Climb' and find out.

This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.
