Tyke is best friends with Danny Price and wherever they go, trouble isn't far behind. Their exploits during their last term at Cricklepit drive the Head to despair and provide a few surprises for the reader.
Gene Kemp grew up near Tamworth in the Midlands. She studied at Exeter University, taught, married and had three children.

This is a must read for everyone. the ending has a brilliant twist which provides all readers with a wonderful denouement.
I loved this book! i first read it years ago and it is still as good today. The characters are like pupils in every school in the land. (although we hope they don't go climbing up school towers!) superb!
