The Walking With Series

Suitable for 8-13 year olds

Young teenagers Matt and James find a time portal whilst training for the forthcoming rugby season. Every time they venture through it they are transported back to the past where they take on the bodies of people from that time period whilst retaining their own young minds.

In each adventure they meet and engage with a different myth or legend of that period and play a vital role in helping them towards a particular mission or cause.

All is not straight forward though because it is not easy for two 21st century boys to survive without the normal comforts of life, especially so, when they realise that their modern gadgets don’t work in the past and they can’t phone home when things get a little tricky.

Walking with the Hood

The first in the "Walking with" Series

Already thinking ahead to the next rugby season, James and Matt decide to spend their summer holidays in training to improve their fitness. On only the second day, however, their swim in the local river leads them to a waterfall whose cavernous depths take them out into another time and place.

Here they meet strange folk - strange yet very familiar folk they know only from books and films. Could they really be in Sherwood Forest talking with the legendary Robin Hood and his faithful band of brothers?

Walking with Nessie

The follow up to the hit "Walking with the Hood"

Less than a week since their return from Sherwood Forest, our intrepid time-travelling hero’s, Matt and James, venture through the cavernous depths of the waterfall and are transported, once again, to another place and time.

This time however, they find themselves in Scotland on the banks of the famous Loch Ness where mysterious sightings and encounters of strange beasts are commonplace amongst the local community and used to attract tourism to the otherwise work starved area.

Walking with the Fisherman

The third in the hit "Walking with" series

Time-travelling best friends, Matt and James were eager for another adventure through the mysterious underwater portal they had discovered earlier that summer.

They had already fought alongside Robin Hood and defended the Loch Ness Monster from unscrupulous trophy hunters.

Where on earth might the waterfall cavern take them next? Never in their wildest dreams would they have imagined this place, this moment in time, these people – and one in particular…

Walking with The Magician

The latest "Walking with" book

Once again Matt and James were ready to go through the time portal seeking another amazing adventure.

Each time they pass through it is different, they never know where they will end up or who they will meet. This time is no exception as they find themselves back on English ground.

They meet a wizened old man who sends them, with a very unusual companion, on a quest to retrieve a famous relic and prevent a war that threatens to tear the country apart.

Walking with Bigfoot

The fifth adventure in the fantastic "Walking with" series

Seeking further adventures in times gone past, Matt and James find themselves in the mountainous regions of Canada. This time, with an unusual group of explorers, who are intent on finding a mythical creature of some stature.

Travelling high into the mountains, to places unvisited before and seemingly devoid of life, they search for evidence that can prove the creatures’ existence. What they find is nothing short of incredible in more ways than one!

Walking with the Hood

This is an absolutely great book that gives a good sense of time period its set in. It’s a comfortable read but it constantly keeps you on your toes. I couldn’t put it down.

Walking with the Hood
An absolutely fabulous read. It’s about two young boys, Matt and James who, by accident discover a time portal that goes to other times. Walking with the Hood is their first adventure. It takes place in Sherwood Forest where they have an adventure of courage, wits and friendship. I would rate it 10/10 and I cannot wait to read their next adventure.

Walking with Nessie

This is a great follow up from Walking with the Hood and I enjoyed it even more. I really liked the characters, the good ones and the bad and the action was great.

Josh, 12

Walking with Nessie
Matt and James find themselves in the Scottish Highlands at a remote village by Loch Ness. International Nessie hunters arrive and they have to protect Nessie from them. This is a great book Mr Clifford.

Claire, 10

Walking with the Fisherman
I really like this book. I never thought much of RE at school but this book has made me change my mind and I am starting to read Bible stories now. Can’t wait for the next book.

Sarah, 12

Walking with the Fisherman
This is an exciting book. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one but the adventure is as good as Hood and Nessie. I like the way the characters from the Bible achieve things without being horrible to others. Lucius Asina is the most horrible of enemies too.

Grace, 11

Walking with The Magician
This is the best Walking With book so far. I really like the way the boys have to enter a jousting competition to get close to the bad people. Aragon the dragon is my favourite character and even Sargo, the wicked witch, gets my sympathy.

Will, 10

Walking with The Magician
This is a really cool book. Matt and James are pushed to the limits to save Excalibur and prevent a war. I like the way that all the characters play an important part at different times in the book. A great read, 10 out of 10.
