Summary

Crammed with stories and sniggers, this hysterical journal brings you more manic mayhem from the crazy world of Tom Gates.

No school for two whole weeks leaves Tom with heaps of time for the important things in life. Yeah! He can forget all about lessons and the irritating Marcus Meldrew and save his energy for good stuff!

Stuff like: inventing new ways to annoy his sister Delia. (So many). Band practice for the Dogzombies - rock stars in the making! Watching TV and eating caramel wafers; eating caramel wafers and watching TV. Excellent!

Unfortunately a couple of small problems called the dentist and his big weirdo sister, Delia, seem to be getting in the way of Tom's brilliant plans....

Good story but...

I just stubbed my toe and it hurts! This is completely different to the story though, but I thought ide just throw it out there for the sake of Russia and its mighty arsenal of nukes

Tom Gates is the best 💯👍🏽😀😀😀😀😀😀😀

I liked it as it is so funny 😂 and the narrator sounds like the kind of person you expect Tom Gates to be. Overall I would recommend this book to anyone 5+ as the author has written it to sound like a child 👶 has written it.

It was very good

It was funny and made me laugh. It had a of crazy things that happen keeping it interesting. This book is great for ages 8-12 otherwise it could get tricky for below 8’s and boring for above 12’s. I only discovered Tom Gates roughly 4 days ago and now getting book three!

Laugh a minute

A laugh out loud book. Excellent performance from the narrator. Can't wait to listen to the others in the series.
