Tom Gates is the master of excuses for late homework: dog attacks; spilt water; and, 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...

Présentation de l'éditeur :
When my teacher, Mr Fullerman, doesn t have his BEADY EYES on me, I like to draw pictures and write stories about stuff like when we had the worst holiday ever (camping sucks), and when my parents came to school for parents evening (groan), and about how Marcus Meldrew is the most annoying boy in the world and how I don t want to sit next to him in class. All I want to do is get tickets to see the best band ever, DUDE3, when they come to town. It s not easy when I m up against Delia, my weirdo big sister, and all my plans seem to get me into MAJOR TROUBLE.
Tom Gates is a master of excuses, expert doodler, comic story writer extraordinaire and the bane of his grumpy teacher Mr Fullerman s life. And in his wacky journal of scribbles and silliness, you ll find all sorts of comic craziness to make you groan with glee! Will Tom ever manage to get his homework in on time, avoid the rage of his teacher AND impress Amy Porter, who sits next to him? Warning! Do not attempt to read this in public. You will snigger loudly!

Biographie de l'auteur :
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.
