Review: Smarty Pants! (The Tyler Files)

What would you do if your pants started talking to you?

This is exactly the problem Tyler faces in science class when his pants suddenly announce they can talk.

And Tyler’s pants have a lot to say. They also don’t like to be ignored, and they seem to have their own agenda, which isn’t always the same as Tyler’s.

Book one in The Tyler Files series, Smarty Pants! is a fun and funny story junior fiction readers will love. It’s a lovely easy read and it's filled with jokes, embarrassing moments and funny situations kids will find hilarious.

Tyler is a fantastic and very relatable character. He’s got tests to study for, bullies to deal with and a secret crush to be distracted by. Throw his talking pants into the mix, and he's got some serious obstacles to face before the school bell rings. 

But Tyler is brave and bold, and he uses his wits and some creative thinking to tackle all the challenges he faces.

With fun illustrations dotted throughout the book and lovely short chapters, this is a fantastic story for younger readers, particularly kids just starting out on independent reading adventures.
