Tom Gates 1 Brillant World of Tom Gates

Meet Tom Gates — a master of excuses, an expert doodler, a comic story writer extraordinaire, and the bane of his teacher’s existence! In this recent recipient of the 2011 Roald Dahl Funny Prize, readers will find an honest, silly and laugh-out-loud book in the format of Tom’s battered homework diary, crammed full of his scribbles and stories. And in his wacky journal, you’ll find all sorts of comic craziness to make you groan with glee! Hear about Tom’s worst holiday ever (“camping sucks”) and the time his parents went to parents’ evening (“groan”). 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 laugh loudly!
