Publisher's Summary

Crammed with stories and sniggers, this hysterical journal brings you more manic mayhem from the crazy world of Tom Gates.

No school for two whole weeks leaves Tom with heaps of time for the important things in life. Yeah! He can forget all about lessons and the irritating Marcus Meldrew and save his energy for good stuff!

Stuff like: inventing new ways to annoy his sister Delia. (So many). Band practice for the Dogzombies - rock stars in the making! Watching TV and eating caramel wafers; eating caramel wafers and watching TV. Excellent!

Unfortunately a couple of small problems called the dentist and his big weirdo sister, Delia, seem to be getting in the way of Tom's brilliant plans....
