Format: Paperback
My 9 year old daughter loved this book as it is funny,Especially The song it has that tom wrote about his sister - "Delia's A weirdo!".
(It is a little bit harsh but extremely funny!!!).
Other bits are Excellent,(E.G. The dentist,School trip,Anoying Delia.)
Recomended for Ages 8 - 11,Comedy Seekers and just plain people who are interseted in this type of book.

The content of this book is suitable for the 11 year old that I bought it for. I was a little disappointed with the quality of the material though. The book is paperback (as stated) but seems a little cheap looking. That will not be a problem, though as the content is what is important to the person I bought it for.

Format: Paperback
My daughter thinks tom gates is awesome (her words ) and she constantly reads It ever single day ! (Again her words) I like it when Norman puts centipedes up his nose !!! And says they are bogeys!! (Her words)
My daughter says this book is awesome you should definitely read it!

I As a mother am overjoyed with this book . I have Always loved reading and couldn't understand why my daughter was so reluctant ! We have had literally hundreds of books on the shelf and my daughter has never really felt passionate about any of them .... Until Tom gates came around !!! Thankyou L. pichon for captivating my daughters imagination !!!! Couldn't recommended this highly enough !!!

I love it I know I'm 8 but still I can write this.
I love it, the cool part is when he calls his Granparents the FOSSILS!becauser they are old.
I have read the first one (It's red)I couldn't wait to read the next one!
I do recommend it to 8-11.

Love Clairexxx

I bought this for my 10 year old son who has only just discovered the Tom Gates books. He read this book within a couple of days but thoroughly enjoyed it. It looks very similar to Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Would highly recommend.

If you have a child who is a reluctant reader, then please consider purchasing this book. It is amusing, easy to read and has a good story. Can't praise it enough.
