If you haven't read this then please do not read any further because I'd hate to give you a spoiler.





*****************************SPOILER ALERT******************************************************************







When I started reading this book something made me slightly uneasy like something was wrong and I knew what it was but in order for the author to put it right I couldn't see how she was going to achieve it. However, what I'd suspected needed to make this a 'better' story - have a point to it that made it worth reading, was all neatly explained towards the end of the book. OK if you haven't read this book and have ignored the spoiler alert you are probably wondering what spoiler I've given you. So let me say something else: When I was at primary school - my last year - my teacher would read us all manner of books. He also started a library area next to our classroom and one of the books he read to us was "The Turbulent Term of Tyke Tyler" - if you've read this book you will probably be having an 'Ah-ha' moment about "When I was".

Whilst this isn't a book I'd have ever thought of reading I am glad I have and would definitely look out for other books by Meg Rosoff.

Taking along to the meet up
