Tom Gates: Excellent Excuses

Publisher details

Synopsis

No school for two whole weeks — YEAH! I can forget ALL about lessons (and irritating things like Marcus Meldrew) and concentrate on good stuff like:
  • Inventing new ways to annoy my sister Delia (so many).
  • Band practice for DOGZOMBIES (with my mate Derek).
  • Watching TV and eating caramel wafers.

Unfortunately a couple of small problems called the dentist and my big weirdo sister Delia seem to be getting in the way of my BRILLIANT plans...
