Tom Gates is a master of excuses, expert doodler, comic story writer extraordinaire – and the bane of his grumpy teacher, Mr Fullerman. And in his hilariously wacky journal, you’ll find all sorts of comic craziness to make you groan with glee! Tom’s battered homework diary is crammed with scribbles and stories, cartoons and jokes – as well as hilariously acerbic comments from the long-suffering Mr Fullerman. Don’t miss this first book in a fantastic new series from Smarties Award winner Liz Pichon, the brilliantly talented creator of My Big Brother, Boris. Honest, silly and laugh-out-loud funny, Tom Gates is a superb new voice for boys of 9 and up.
