Tom Gates #1: The Brilliant World of Tom Gates

The place where it all started! Tom’s epic first book, now with colour-in spines! Welcome to the brilliant world of Tom Gates. Or rather, welcome to Tom’s battered homework diary, where he writes down all the funny stuff that happens to him. Who is Tom? A naughty schoolkid with a talent for doodling (and for making you laugh till your sides go ouch). Nobody takes Tom seriously. Not his grumpy sister, Delia. Not his parents. And DEFINITELY not his angry teacher, Mr Fullerman, who thinks Tom is a total waste of space. But Mr Fullerman has things VERY WRONG. Tom Gates is a TOTAL FUNNY STAR!

  • Tom’s massive first book – the place where it all started
  • Roald Dahl Funny Prize and Red House Award winner!
  • Bursting with laugh-out-loud humour and cool cartoons
  • Sensationally popular series: over 2 million copies sold
