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.
Ever tried to get out of going to school by pretending that you're dead? Ever managed to convince a friend that they're invisible? Ever been stuck in a gorilla suit and nearly put in a zoo? Andy has. Andy's the greatest practical joker in the world ... well, almost. He would be, if only his practical jokes didn't have the annoying habit of backfiring on him.
Have you ever wondered where ideas come from and how stories are made? Would you like to know the true stories behind some of Andy’s books and characters? Are you a teacher looking for simple, practical and inspiring writing activities for your next creative writing class? Would you like to discover tons of great ways to have fun with words and pictures? If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions then this is definitely the right book for you!
Andy and Terry have a new book to write, but there's a problem. A BIG problem. Well, quite a few big problems actually.... On a hill not too far away there is a tree. And in that tree there is a tree house. And in that tree house there is a bowling alley, a see-through swimming pool, a tank full of sharks, a giant rope swing, a library full of comics, a secret underground laboratory, a vegetable vaporiser and a free marshmallow-dispensing machine.
