Review: Tom Gates: Best Book Day Ever (so Far)

It's Book Week at Oakfield High and everyone is making their own costume. Even the teachers are getting in on the act. There is a real buzz in the air, as normal lessons are put on the backburner to make way for costume capers and creativity.

With a sensational prize up for grabs for best costume, Tom is determined to create a masterpiece. Can his Alien Scale monster take out first prize?

Liz Pichon's hugely popular Tom Gates books are a sensational blending of word, typography and image, cleverly-designed to attract boys or kids who don't particularly like to read, or are struggling to read.

This latest tome was written especially for World Book Day in March of this year, and would make classic reading for any Book Week school celebrations.

Filled to brimming with Tom's typical diary-style rantings and doodles, this is classic Tom Gates fun for kids of many ages.
