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

About the Author:

L. Pichon says that when she was little, she loved to draw, and her mom said she was very good at making a mess (this is still true today). She kept drawing, went to art school, became a designer and art director in the music industry, and began to write and illustrate children s books. After its publication in the U.K., "The Brilliant World of Tom Gates" won several prestigious awards. L. Pichon lives in Brighton, England, with her family."

Review:

Tom's doodles are appealing particularly the unsmiling, sunglasses-clad face of sister Delia, repeated whenever her name appears throughout
Kirkus Reviews
Middle grade readers looking for more books with "Wimpy-appeal" should find a lot to enjoy in this UK import.
School Library Journal
Pichon hits the elementary-school-boy sweet spot by blending humor and tween embarrassments (parents, having to wear teddy bear swimming trunks) with Tom's hilarious doodles and insights...Ample white space and illustrations make this perfect for reluctant readers or those not quite ready for Tom Angleberger's Origami Yoda series.
Booklist
Fans of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" are a natural audience for this British import, the second in a series that will surely please budding Anglophiles; an illustrated glossary of Britishisms is included.
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
