Review: The Brilliant World of Tom Gates

I am Tom Gates. When my teachers don’t have their beady eyes on me, I like to draw pictures and think of ways to annoy Delia.

Do not read if you are:

1. My grumpy sister Delia

2. Marcus Meldrew (who is an idiot)

3. Mrs Worthington, who has a moustache (it's tricky not to stare)

Tom Gates is a ten year old boy who has a best friend next door called Derek, also a ten year old boy, but the bad thing is they are in different classes (but still in the same grade). They can't chat in class too much, so they chat on the way home.

This book is brilliant because it’s a funny and ha ha book. Also when you start to read it, it gets better and you will keep on reading and reading until you are done!

  1. Riley, how great to read your review. This book is shortlisted in the UK for the Red House Children's Book Award, and the winner gets announced February 18th. I'm going to the award ceremony so am hoping to meet Liz Pichon - if I do, I'll tell her how much you enjoyed her book :-)
