The Brilliant World of Tom Gates

by Liz Pichon - £6.99  Scholastic (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781407120690 | ISBN 10: 1407120697

“When my teacher, Mr Fullerman, doesn’t have his BEADY EYES on me, I like to draw pictures and write stories about stuff, like when we had the worst holiday ever (camping sucks), and when my parents came to school for parents’ evening (groan). And about how Marcus Meldrew is the most annoying boy in the world and how I don’t want to sit next to him in class. All I want to do is get tickets to see the best band ever, DUDE3, when they come to town. It’s not easy when I’m up against Delia, my weirdo big sister, and all my plans seem to get me into MAJOR TROUBLE...”
 
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 his scribbles and stories, cartoons and ideas – as well as comments from the long-suffering Mr Fullerman. Warning! Do not attempt to read this in public. You will snigger loudly!
