Tom Gates: Family, Friends and Furry Creatures

(2 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Scholastic


Tom has forgotten to bring his baby photo into school, his shoes are making embarrassingly rude noises, and, as he rushes to the classroom, he bumps into the snuffling Amber who sneezes all over him. What else can go wrong?

When Mr Fullerman decides that Favourite Snacks isn't a suitable topic for Tom's school project, he has to think again.

Researching his new idea, "Family, Friends and Furry Creatures", Tom discovers that his grandparents aren't really called the Wrinklies and the Fossils, that his Dad has a guilty secret about Uncle Kevin and a famous footballer, and that his parents ended up together thanks to a piece of cake!

Another hilarious illustrated book for older readers from multi-award-winning illustrator and author Liz Pichon. Starring an appealingly forgetful disaster magnet of a schoolboy hero, Tom's adventures are accessible and entertaining, with comical cartoons throughout.
