Recommended for: Grades 4-6

Marie Tutweiler, founder of Tuckernuck Hall, issued a treasure hunt challenge to her students. This was 80 years before Laurie’s parents insisted that she attend the school as they had. Laurie wants nothing to do with the Tuckernuck Cluckers and their embarrassing chicken hats. Disappointed in her classroom assignment as Gerbil Monitor, she is partnered with Bud Wallace, a smart but unpopular student. By complete chance, they find a clue to the Treasure. Both afraid that the other might claim the treasure for their own, they agree to work together. All the clues they unearth are difficult, and to avoid suspicion, Bud and Laurie each end up in extra-curricular activities they never would have chosen on their own.
Hilarious situations abound as Laurie & Bud race to find the “treasure beyond bounds!” before the school is forced to shut down to make way for a new development.
Lots of humor and action make this a fun read.
