There is so much fun to be found in this book, particularly for boys, with its kokky illustrations, humor and relatibility. Tom Gates is an eccentric but ‘normal’ boy who loves to annoy his sister Delia, is an expert on escaping homework and has a band called Dog Zombies.He likes doodling on his homework, is always late to school and is always trying to impress Amy Porter. Then there’s Marcus Mildrew, the know it all. And with who cook banana pizza for lunch, life is sure to be a roller coaster.
The text may be nominal,but being written in diary form with funny illustrations and light-hearted situational comedy will make it a fun read for ages 6-12.
