Description of this Book

Between snowstorms, visiting relatives, and chocolate raisins, everything's piling up around Tom Gates in his sixth doodle-packed diary. Tom's hoping to be made a Star Pupil at school, but that means he needs to put more effort into his homework than his doodles. Easier said than done! Meanwhile, his grandparents (the Fossils) are about to celebrate their fiftieth wedding anniversary, and Uncle Kevin wants to plan something special. Then the cold weather turns to snow and school gets canceled, leaving Tom is snowed in at home with quite the crew, including his especially grumpy sister, Delia; his cousins, and his annoying classmate, Marcus Meldrew. Aren't snow days supposed to be fun?

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review The Tom Gates series is popular in the author's home country and is sure to find a wide following on this side of the Atlantic as well. There's a broad hunger for graphic novels and for visual storytelling in a longer format, and this book is a chocolatey raisin treat, just like the ones Tom sneaks at the beginning of the book. --New York Journal of Books
