“Tom Gates can easily be seen as a British cousin to Jeff Kinney's Greg Heffley." --Publishers Weekly
Meet Tom Gates. When his teachers don't have their beady eyes on him, he likes to draw pictures and write about stuff. Tom's teachers think he is easily distracted and "lacks focus," but that's a bit harsh--can he help it if his grumpy big sister, Delia, made him late for school (again), or that last night's homework had to be sacrificed to stave off a vicious dog attack? Master of excuses, creative storyteller, and middle-school comedian extraordinaire, Tom Gates is guaranteed to get kids turning the pages--and keep them laughing.
