The Lovereading4Kids comment

A well-deserved winner of the Carnegie Medal in 1978, The Turbulent Term of Tyke Tiler remains as fresh as ever in this attractive new edition. Twelve year old Tyke, who has a reputation as something of a troublemaker, tells the story about the last days of term before the looming move to secondary school. There’s adventure when Tyke’s friend Danny is accused of stealing a watch and runs away. How Tyke helps to prove who really took the watch and the final last daring escapade make this a gripping page turner. And the surprising twist remains as brilliantly-kept a secret as ever!


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Devastatingly accurate and funny picture of primary school life and one child's attempt to beat the system. Tyke's determination to protect dim Danny from his educational fate is the spark that sets the story ablaze - but the 'identity-kick' in the last chapter is the knockout!

Synopsis

The Turbulent Term of Tyke Tiler by Gene Kemp

Tyke Tiler and Danny Price are best friends, much to the despair of the headmaster of Cricklepit Combined School - because wherever the pair go, trouble is never far behind. Stolen money, a sheep's skeleton, fights in class...And somehow it's always trouble that Tyke has to sort out. Can Tyke help the hapless Danny stay out of trouble for their last term? And what final surprise does Tyke have in store?
