The Lovereading4Kids comment

The award winning and hilarious Tom Gates series gets a welcome addition as the hapless Tom Gates shows that he is absolutely fantastic – at some things! This time, Class 5 are going on an activity weekend. Tom is, of course, very excited not only because it gets him away from his annoying sister but also because it will include rock climbing and kayaking. Only one thing can spoil it…Will Tom be lucky enough to avoid it?

Synopsis

Tom Gates is Absolutely Fantastic (at Some Things) by Liz Pichon

This takes the form of Tom's battered homework diary - crammed with his doodles and stories. Exciting News! Mr Fullerman announces that class 5F are going on an 'Activity Break'! Which should be fun. As long as I don't ge stuck in a group with anyone who snores or worse still with ...Marcus Meldrew. Delia is already threatening to paint my room funny colours while I'm away. Which is annoying. I just hope the only surprise I hae when I get home is the new pet that I hear Mum and Dad talking about. Because I've always wanted a pet!
