Three fantastic stories about a Tribe of friends!
'Tribe,' said Fifty as though he was trying it out. 'OK, I'm for it.'
'What about you, Copper Pie?' said Jonno.
'Yep, I'm in.'
'In. But I'm not wearing a grass skirt.'
I couldn't wait for Jonno to ask me. I wasn't going to be just Keener any more – the quiet hard-working boy with the floppy blond hair who's never even had a detention. I was going to be Keener of Tribe. It felt like my life was starting. In one day everything had changed. I knew I was part of something amazing.
Keener, Copper Pie, Fifty and Bee have always been together and that's how they like it. Until a new boy joins and everything changes. Their lives are a lot less ordinary from the moment they become TRIBE.
'This is a wonderful book for younger readers . . . there's a character for everyone to relate to here . . . perfect for boys and girls aged about 8+ who like to read short, gentle (yet exciting) stories about overcoming everyday challenges, and the fun of friendship.'
