The first title in the bestselling series from the brilliantly talented Liz Pichon.


Tom Gates is the master of excuses for late homework: dog attacks & spilt water & lightning . . .


Tom's exercise book is full of his doodles, cartoons and thoughts, as well as comments from his long-suffering teacher, Mr Fullerton.

After gaining five merits for his CAMPING SUCKS holiday story, Tom's work starts to go downhill - which is a pity, as he's desperate to impress Amy Porter, who sits next to him . . .




Written in diary form


Full of Tom's doodles and pictures & his amazing sense of humour


This first title in the series, was the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize!


Perfect gifts for boys & girls who love to laugh themselves silly
