The Lovereading4Kids comment

March 2012 Book of the Month. From the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize comes the third amazing instalment of this brilliant series. This again takes the form of Tom's battered homework diary - crammed with his scribbles and stories. Totally accessible for boys and girls and reluctant readers, honest, silly, and laugh-out-loud funny, Tom Gates is a superb voice for kids of 9+ and perfect for anyone who loves Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

Everything's Amazing (Sort Of) : Tom Gates 3 by Liz Pichon

Back to school, but it's not all bad. We're entering Rooster in a dog show, the School Disco and my birthday are coming up so thi term's going to be amazing! Mostly because Delia's not invitedo any of these. There's only one small problem with my birthday, Granny Mavis says she's going to cook ...uh oh!


Praise for the Tom Gates books:

"This book is a must for anyone who doodles, likes to wind up their sibling, has a serious caramel wafer habit and enjoys having their chuckle muscles exercised." Michael Rosen

"Pichon's books are bursting with humour and you can tell it comes from real experiences and observations." Martin Chilton, The Telegraph

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

I love lovereading4kids because I’ve read amazing books I would never have picked up, and its opened doors to new genre’s I now love.

Harriet Cunningham

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

Pippa, Jack, Liam & Matthew Wils

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!
