Tom Gates - Genius Ideas (Mostly)
The brilliant Tom Gates is back in this, the fourth installment of this award-winning series from Liz Pichon. In this volume of his hilarious diary, Tom documents the ups and downs of his daily life as he deals everything from Dad's embarassing new fitness regime to the challenges of entering his band DOGZOMBIES into the school Talent Contest - and most horrifying of all, seeing weirdo big sister Delia without her sunglasses.
Both existing fans of Tom Gates and newcomers to the series will be delighted by this wickedly funny and engaging story. With plenty of Tom's scribbly illustrations, doodles and lively hand-drawn cartoons throughout, as well as a fun flip book, it is an appealingly visual read that will keep young readers entertained from beginning to end.
