The first book in the bestselling Tom
Gates series of books from the brilliantly talented
Liz Pichon.
Tom Gates is the master of excuses for late homework: dog
attacks - spilt water - lightning...

Tom's exercise book is full of his doodles, cartoons
and thoughts, as well as comments from his long-suffering teacher,
Mr Fullerton.
After gaining five merits for his CAMPING
SUCKS holiday story, Tom's work starts to go
downhill - which is a pity, as he's desperate to impress
Amy Porter, who sits next to him...

Tom Gates is a series of books in diary form

Full of Tom's doodles and pictures & his amazing
sense of humour
The Brilliant World of Tom Gates, was the
