Gene Kemp Books Overview

The Turbulent Term of Tyke Tiler

This series offers a range of plays specially written or adapted for 11 to 14 year olds for easy acting or reading aloud in class. Many have large casts. This book is a dramatization of Gene Kemp’s novel, and has ideas for discussion and activities at the end of each episode.

Charlie Lewis Plays for Time

For Charlie Lewis and his friends in class 4M the dynamic Trish Moffatt and her strange twin Rocket the last term at Cricklepit Combined School could have been fun. That is, if the beloved Mr Merchant hadn’t been replaced by the unbearable Mr Carter.


For one armed Juniper, whose father is a criminal and whose mother is ‘a bit loopy,’ her friends and teachers at Cricklepit School make it a comforting refuge from the secrets of her past.

Just Ferret

Ferret doesn’t think that Cricklepit Combined School will be any different from the other schools he’s been to but he’s wrong. One big problem is that he can’t read. And then there’s the bullying by Magnus and his gang.

Jason Bodger and the Priory Ghost

When Jason visits an ancient priory with his class, he meets a girl who lived eight centuries before.

No Place Like

Pete’s negative attitude toward college is not improved when he accidentally breaks the dean’s glas*ses on the first day, but opportunities for self expression in composition class and with friends gradually give him a new view of his own worth.

The Hairy Hands

Jessica is not happy about her father’s plans to remarry, but her brother Tom is livid. Dad’s plans for a bonding holiday seen doomed. Family tensions and spooky happenings cause a crisis before deadly danger, in the shape of an escaped convict, bring this unwilling family together.

Bluebeard’s Castle

In this spine tingling tale for older children, Magnus Moore, the famous millionaire moviemaker, meets Sharon the headstrong older sister of Mary, Gary and Ems. Magnus Moore’s ambition is to build the biggest and best theme park in the world. When Sharon becomes his latest bride, the rest of the family is invited to preview this wonderland. But they quickly discover a great and menacing evil lurking deep in the dungeons…
