|By The Book|

Bad Luck Boy
By The Book was the fourth episode of Tracy Beaker Returns. It was first broadcast at 17:00 on the CBBC Channel on 22/01/2010.
- The episode takes its name from the idiom "by the book".
- When Tracy goes to get the kids from the lounge, an episode of gameshow Get 100 is seen on the tv. BBC Presenter Hardeep Singh Kohli can be seen briefly, albeit through footage taken from Get 100.
- Tracy references the events of the episode Dares, (namely her climbing the tree, eating the worm and getting her room back from Justine).
- She also omits (probably to avoid making herself look bad) the fact she got stuck up the tree, vomited after eating the worm and let Justine keep the room to spite Justine.
- At the start of season 4 of the old series, Sid moved everyone into a new building, so Tee would not have been able to climb the same tree as Tracy.
