Tom Gates #2: Excellent Excuses (And Other Good Stuff)

 

The second book in the bestselling  Tom Gates series of books from the brilliantly talented Liz Pichon.

No school for two whole weeks! (Yeah!)

I can forget ALL about lessons (and irritating things like Marcus Meldrew).

And concentrate on good stuff like:

  • Inventing new ways to annoy my sister Delia. (So many).
  • Band practice for DOGZOMBIES (with my mate Derek).
  • Watching TV and eating caramel wafers.
  • Eating caramel wafers and watching TV.

Excellent.

Unfortunately a couple of small problems called the dentist and my big weirdo sister, Delia, seem to be getting in the way of my BRILLIANT plans . . .

  • Full of Tom’s doodles and pictures & his amazing sense of humour
  • The Brilliant World of Tom Gates, was the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize!
