Emily Fairlie’s clever and imaginative, The Lost Treasure of Tuckernuck, tells the story of sixth grader Laurie Madison. She is one of the students at Tuckernuck and desperately wants to join her best friend Kimmy at another middle school. However, it will have to wait as she is assigned for gerbil duty with the annoying Bud Wallace. Trying to keep a close eye on the rodents, one mischievous gerbil escapes and Laurie and Bud must track it down where she staggers upon the first clue of the famo [...]

This book reminded me strongly of Andrew Clements Keepers of the School series. Unfortunately Clements books are much better. The main characters in this book bicker & fight so much & aren't all that likable. The clues were a stretch & most of the time even the sleuths in the story weren't sure they actually solved the clue before moving on to the next one. All in all, I wanted to like this book a lot more than I did. My recommendation is to skip this book & read Keepers of the S [...]

Even though her family has gone to Tuckernuck Junior High for generations, Laurie would rather go to Hamilton with her friend Kimmy. She's even more irritated when, for a class job, she gets chosen gerbil co-monitor with the annoying Bud. Still, there is the hope that the school will actually be torn down and all the students relocated to other schools. In a stroke of luck, Laurie comes across a clue to the lost treasure that the founding principal, Maria Tutweiler, hid in the building, and she [...]

2014-15 Texas Bluebonnet Award nominee. Always good advice from the jacket flap: make friends with the ancient school librarian, or any age librarian! Wonder if kids will recognize the nod to CHiPs officers Ponch & Jon in the class gerbils names, teachers of a certain age will. The little notes were a bit annoying to me but they do break up and move story along, which will be interesting for kids. I changed my mind towards the end when I found them a really effective way to wrap up the story [...]

Laurie is not happy to be spending her sixth grade year at Tuckernuck Hall, alma mater of her mother, father and older brother, rather than going to school with her best friend Kimmy. To make matters worse, her new assigned task is class gerbil monitor which she performs with her assigned partner, Bud Wallace, one of the least popular kids at school. However, Bud and Laurie stumble upon clues to solve the decades old puzzle left by the school's founder and in their humorous adventures around the [...]

Reminds me of Benjamin Pratt (Clements) books because of the mystery and historic school similarities. Kids who love Balliett, Keene and Dixon will eat this one up.

I was assigned to review The Magician's Bird: A Tuckernuck Mystery, the sequel to The Lost Treasure of Tuckernuck, so I thought that I had better read the first book, because otherwise how can you really write a review?The Lost Treasure of Tuckernuck was ok. I would recommend it to fans of mystery books, but it's very light on suspense and danger. There really isn't any danger, other than a historic school closing, and what kid is really going to be torn up about that? It's the story of sixth gr [...]

Laurie is completely miserable to be starting at a private middle school. She would give anything to be at Hamilton with her BFF, Kimmy. But her family has always gone to Tuckernuck, with its dopey chicken mascot.Bud’s presentation to the school board was so convincing it got all sweets banned from Tuckernuck. Consequently it also made him a social pariah. Bud can live without friends, but since his mother passed away, he can’t live with becoming a disappointment to his father. This means co [...]

The Lost Treasure of Tuckernuck is a very creative and original story. Laurie Madison has just begun middle school at Tuckernuck Hall and is desperate to get out. The halls of Tuckernuck are packed with odd art, old librarians, and Tuckernuck Clucker spirit. Laurie's best friend, Kimmy, attends another middle school, and Laurie is determined to join her there. Unfortunately, before anything can begin, she is assigned gerbil duty with Bud Wallace, the most unappreciated sixth-grader (after Bud's [...]

Sometimes life just doesn't go your way. Arlie does not, does not, want to go to Tuckernuck Hall for middle school. After all, her best friend is attending the local public school. But Arlie doesn't have a choice. Her parents, both Tuckernuck alumni, insist that she become a clucker (called because the school mascot is a chicken). Things only get worse when she's paired with Bud Wallace and assigned hamster duty. Bud has his own issues, one of which was his science fair project a couple of years [...]

Students in upper second grade, third, fourth, and fifth would enjoy this book. I highly recommend it, especially if you like mysteries.Here is my review:The founder of Tuckernuck Middle School was Maria Tutweiler who left a puzzle for the students to solve. The prize is "a treasure beyond bounds." This was 80 years ago and no one has been able to solve the puzzle much less find the first clue. (Everyone thought she was crazy and they still think that.) Laurie is forced to attend Tuckernuck beca [...]

This is an enjoyable middle grade read that includes humor and mystery. With a chicken for the school mascot (the Tuckernuck Cluckers!) you know there are going to be some funny moments. Laurie and Bud are new 6th graders at this unusual school and not off to a very good start. In fact, Laurie is planning to transfer to another school as soon as possible but coming from a family of Clucker alumni makes that tough. When she and Bud as forced into an unlikely partnership they discover the first cl [...]

I loved this book! I loved it! Perfect, light hearted reading. The main characters are 6th graders and since I currently have a 6th grader, I can tell you that the author really has their dialogue and attitudes down pat! Made me chuckle even more.The school of Tuckernuck (their mascot is a chicken so they are the Cluckers!) is going to be razed. The school board wants to sell the property as it's worth a lot of money. Just not with the school on it. For 80 years Tuckernuck has boasted a treasure [...]

Nice middle grade novel about kids trying to complete a treasure hunt established by a quirky schoolmaster 70 years ago. Typical treasure hunting stuff. I liked the friendship that developed between Laurie and Bud, and the change of heart they have at the end regarding their school. At points, I think Laurie's quick thinking dialogue seemed a little beyond what a 6th grader would come up with, especially the part where she derails the Romantic Poets club.I found myself skipping over Laurie's lis [...]

I certainly liked it. I thought the clues were great fun and I loved how the final clue brought the kids back to the original foyer and the chicken portrait. I thought the use of lists, student note passing and administrative emailing would be fun for kids to read. For me, an obvious comparison is The Westing Game - one of my favorites. I don't feel like the character development is as good in The Lost Treasure. Every player in TWG develops over time and is 'improved' as a result of playing the [...]

Precious tale of two unlikely treasure hunters! Laurie (a student wishing she could transfer from the first day of school) and Bud (a social outcast for having sweets banned from school in favor or more healthful food choices) are joined together as the class gerbil monitors. When one of the gerbils escapes, they chase it through the school and end up knocking the beloved portrait of Hilda the Chicken, the school's mascot. While trying to hoist it back up on the wall without being caught, the tw [...]

Disclaimer: I won this book in a giveaway.This book was actually funny and endearing. I laughed out loud in a few places because of things I didn't see coming. The illustrations were really nice to look at and the notes and memos gave a nice touch. By the way, Tuckernuck Hall seems like an awesome school to go to. If you don't care about looking "cool" that is. I mean, yes, the school mascot is a chicken and the students are called cluckers, but 'common, chicken paraphernalia? It has a bell towe [...]

I really wanted to give this 1 1/2 stars; I liked the plot, but I didn't like ANY of the characters! I mean it, NONE of the characters was remotely believable, likeable, or even relate-able in any fashion (except for the ex-best friend, but as she only appears for about 3 seconds in the book, I don't think she really counts and even she was just shallow). All the people are stereotypes, or on the flip side they don't behave in a realistic fashion. They act very bizarrely--act being the strong wo [...]

I won a copy through the ' Firstreads program! Quite often I have picked up a 'children' or 'young adult' book, just to be sorely disappointed with what options youth have to read. This book is far from that disappointment. The idea is simple: There is a treasure somewhere in school. Since the founder's days, students have been on the hunt. Now, two sixth-graders have found the first clue. Lost Treasure follows Bud and Laurie through misadventures, awkward moments, and hilarity. Notes and emails [...]

The story is told through narrative, memos , journal writings, letters, and other memorabilia, and in the acknowledgments, the author t [...]

Fun, good paced middle school fiction. I borrowed it from the library for my son while we were out of town and read it myself. Wholesome story, no excessive tween drama or romance. A girl and boy at school are forced together to care for insane gerbils and end up secretly working together to find a treasure at their school, which is threatened to close. Nothing scarey and it is fun to watch them unravel the clues. I think it is targeted at 8-12 year olds, but those younger and some older might e [...]

I bought this book for my children and, as normal, I read through it first to make sure it was appropriate for the age and reading level of the child in question.I really enjoyed this book. It featured a quirky cast of characters, a school in need of help, and a main character that was likable despite her flaws. I liked the mystery and the fact that the children had to go outside their comfort zones to solve the mysteryd that they learned things about themselves in the process.I wholeheartedly r [...]

This was quite possibly the best book I've ever read. It is mysterious and has many adventures. I recommend this book to everybody that wants to read an interesting book. It is about two kids one a journey to find the lost treasure of the school. They go though many clues including knocking over a painting to steel keys to the bell tower. With the treasure one clue away the school begins to close down, so it is up to Laurie and Bud to find the treasure and save the school.

This story is about kids being smart. There are no superpowers or magical creatures, just smart kids. Laurie & Bud both have their own reasons to look for the Tuckernuck Treasure. For 80 years this treasure has been hidden somewhere in their school. It is the strangest scavenger hunt anyone has ever been on. Their time is running out since the school board wants to tear down Tuckernuck Hall and sell the land. Can they do it?
