Trompie 7: Trompie die kragman (ePub) | Children's Fiction

Topsy Smith

Human & Rousseau

Dawie's parents have to go away for three months and are in two minds about letting their son stay with Trompie but then they boys get up to mischief with a donkey and poor Dawie's fate is sealed – he is sent to the school hostel.

Our friends are in grade nine now and the principal warns them that this is the time to start taking their studies seriously and forget about things like gangs. Will this be the end of Kwaggaberg's famous Boksom Gang?

Trompie reads an advertisement in which a strongman promises men who do his bodybuilding course that they will be admired by girls and feared by enemies. The Big Chief decides this is exactly what he needs in his life and once again proves what an entrepreneur he is when he comes up with a clever plan to pay for the muscleman's training apparatus.

In between all of this our hero also has to keep the girl who helps him with his homework happy and cut a new bully at school down to size.
