Honest, silly, and laugh-out-loud funny ... the first book in Liz Pichon's hugely popular, award-winning Tom Gates series.

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 ...

About the Author

When Liz was little she was very keen on drawing Walt Disney characters and making stuff out of clay. Her Mum said she was very good at 'Making a mess' (this is still true today.) Liz kept on drawing and went to Camberwell School Of Art London where she got a BA Hons in Graphic Design. Her first (and only) PROPER job was working for Jive Records designing Album covers for various musicians and artists you've probably never heard of (and a few you might have).

Liz has been a freelance illustrator and writer for 5... 7... 10... quiet a long time now. She has won several nice awards for her books that she gets very over excited about. The Brilliant World Of Tom Gates is Liz s first (of three) fiction books for older children. Liz is married and has three children. They live in Brighton amongst all the other hundreds of illustrators that live here too.
