Product description

The top-of-the-class, extra special new bestseller from multi-million copy selling author and illustrator Liz Pichon. A laugh-out-loud, packed-with-pictures Tom Gates story! Oh no! Tom’s stuck at home with a fractured ankle and it’s spoiling his fun. Doodling on his plaster cast helps to pass the time, along with visits from family (with treats), friends and even Rooster managing to sneak in. Tom remembers other fun times he’s had, like metal detecting with Uncle Kevin and the cousins or inventing a new secret language with Derek. But only ONE thing will cheer Tom up: a caramel doughnut from the new bakery… trouble is, every other kid in town keeps getting there before him!

Our November 2021 Ages 9-10 Book of the Month

My middle-grade Book of the Month pick for November has to be Tom Gates: Random Acts of Fun. Uh-oh! Tom’s stuck at home with a fractured ankle and is FED UP. He starts to think up fun stuff to pass the time: doodling on his plaster cast, having his friends have a go on his crutches and sitting by the window spying on his street. But only ONE thing will really cheer Tom up: a caramel doughnut from the new bakery in town… trouble is, he can’t get his hands on one before every other kid in town gets there before him!

This new book is the 19th in the series from the best-selling, award-winning author Liz Pichon. This laugh-out-loud story is perfect for boys and girls who love to be silly and creative. Written in diary form and with doodles on every page, the engaging format keeps any reluctant readers hooked. Perfect for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Dork Diaries. This year we celebrated 10 years of Tom Gates books and saw the launch of The Brilliant World of Tom Gates TV series on Sky – so if you’re a fan of this book there’s plenty more to dig into!
