About the Book

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?

Mischief and surprises abound in this hilariously funny classic story from award-winning author Gene Kemp.
