When Oakfield School is unexpectedly closed, what's Tom and the gang to do?!?
A weeks' worth of drawing, doodling, games, stories and activities in this fantastic new illustrated offering from best-selling author of the Tom Gates series, Liz Pichon!
It’s half-term break and everyone has exciting plans for the holidays. And to make it even better, Tom’s teacher has declared it to be a “no homework” week. Brilliant! Except that Tom’s parents have the weeks mixed up and they have to go to work. It looks like Tom is going to be dragged to the office with his mum, parcelled off to his cousins’ house, and babysat by gloomy older sister Delia. Tom’s school holidays are looking extremely dull indeed. Or are they?
With the July school holidays looming, this is a fantastically timely book for Tom Gates fans (and their parents!). Tom’s story about his week off school is as funny and mad as any of the previous books - but this one is interspersed with excellent games, recipes, jokes, and magic tricks. Kids can follow along with Tom as he fills in his week with (screen-free!) activities and crafts. This book is bound to be popular with all Tom Gates fans and will have the added bonus of keeping them busy even after they’ve finished reading.
