Tom Gates

The Brilliant World of
Tom Gates

It’s a British invasion! Fans of the Wimpy Kid will love the energetic doodles and entertaining escapades of Tom Gates.

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...

Middle-school comedian, homework dodger, rock-star wannabe, master doodler. There’s only one kid who fits this description: Tom Gates, the sensation from across the pond and star of these hilarious adventures. Now collected in one brilliant boxed set with a bonus locker-size poster that homework avoiders can color themselves, Tom’s antics are more enjoyable than ever. It will take more than grumpy older sisters, killer toothaches, and math lessons to stop Tom—not to mention his band, DogZombies—from becoming a hit.
