Description of this Book
Honest, silly, and laugh-out-loud funny ...the first book in Liz Pichon's hugely popular, award-winning Tom Gates series. 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 ...
