Now in paperback with new colour-in spines! How does this kid genius stay on top? Find out – and don’t be shy about laughing like a raving looniac too! Doodle hero Tom Gates is sharing his tips for success. Want to be like him? Just follow these simple rules. 1. Stay awake in lessons (it helps). 2. Don’t draw HILARIOUS pictures of your teachers. 3.
