But just what *is* that squeaking sound coming from Tom's shoes?

I love this series and I love this author.  I've loved all of the other books and there's only 1 thing wrong about it...Nothing!  I love the illustrations and writing.  This is probably the best book I've ever,ever read! and you know how many books there are in the world.

Tom gates is great. A brand new instalment of the numerous books, family, friends and furry creatures is epic. It is written in Liz pinchon's writing style which really is like no other! . A diary style book, tom is challenged to do a project on family and friends. But what he doesn't realise is you have to one more thing like your pet or hobby. No, snacks is not option! .


Packed with laughs , full to the brim with quirky characters and of course doodles and drawings on every page, this book is awesome, epic and truly amazing. Yep, tom is back in full force!!!!

Yet again Liz Pichon has written another fantastic book and I was dying to get my hands on it. I am a huge Tom Gates fan but also I would recommend it to anyone how like diary of the wimpy kid or dork diaries as I personally love all these books. The story for this book is just as great as all of the other amazing books that Liz Pichon has written and amazed me with. What makes me love these kinds of books is how I can put myself in Tom's shoes whilst reading the book and absolutely loving it.

All of my children absoloutely love the Tom Gates collection. They love how the books are just them really. They often tell me things they have read that they find funny or “we’ve done that” I personally haven’t read them, but knowing they love them is just fab to me

This is a good, quick and easy to read book. The drawings are amazing and I love to draw in this style. In this story Tom gets into a lot of trouble doing his school project but it all works out in the end. I love that Tom does doodles just like me.

 I would love to rate this book higher than 5 stars but it doesn't go bigger than that! I loved this book because it always lets me imagine being Tom Gates. It makes me picture every word, and I imagine it all like a film. The story was really funny and amazing because Tom kept making fun of Marcus calling him an orange! Anyone who loves diary style books will love the Tom Gates series, especially this new one!

I really like how the author writes because she makes it sound as though Tom Gates (a child) is writing the book himself. The author really does use words and phrases that a boy Tom's age would say. It's the first book I've ever read that was written like a diary and I really enjoyed that style of writing. I loved the pictures because they made the diary really funny. I liked reading about how Tom felt about his school project - it made me laugh!

In this book Tom's double grandparents come to his house. And he gets to have some mini wafers. And he thinks his grandparents are spies! 
I think people should read it because it's a brilliant book!
