Where Tom Gates differs from Wimpy Kid however, is that Tom is actually a rather nice character, unlike Greg Heffley in Wimpy Kid. Tom has his enemies, of course, but he doesn't try to mercilessly get one over on people who are supposed to be his friends, like Gregg, and he isn't mean like Gregg. The humour in Tom Gates is quite gentle and silly, and inclusive, where Gregg is rather a manipulative, horrible character who enjoys the misery of other people.
I always try and steer children towards reading Tom Gates as an alternative (a welcome alternative) to Wimpy Kid. This latest volume is exactly like all the books that went before it, and none the worse for it. Tom and his friends enjoy the snow, and Tom tries to become a star pupil in class. At home, his family are gearing up to celebrate his grandparents fiftieth wedding anniversary and Tom and his band continue to fail to get a gig. All my children read and enjoyed this book over the christmas holiday, as did I, and it is another book that will be in high demand in our school library when we go back in January.
This is the sixth book in the Roald Dahl Funny Prize winning series, and it’s as much fun as ever. Tom doodles on everything (so no change there then), his sister Delia is grumpy all the time (so no change there then either), and if there’s an opportunity to gobble up a caramel wafer it is not wasted.
Brilliantly entertaining to read, and equally entertaining just to look at because of the fantastic doodles, Liz Pichon really knows how to capture a reader’s attention, and how to make them giggle uncontrollably once she’s got it. The Tom Gates books are a great choice for reluctant readers, for willing readers, and everyone in between who enjoys silliness and caramel wafers. Plus you get two (two!) board games, and a lesson in how to make a stand-up monster. Extra special treats indeed.
My 8 year old daughter eagerly anticipated the release of the new Tom Gates story, which we loaded on her kindle yesterday. She was delighted to see all the illustrations were included (we had bought hard copies in the past) but the quality of the images is very poor and the type size absolutely tiny (there is no option to increase the font size due to the illustrations etc I guess). I'm really struggling to read it myself but my daughter finds it almost impossible. My daughter's interest in Tom Gates stories stems from a difficulty with horizontal tracking. Liz Pichon's style is wonderful for children with this problem as the varying type sizes, illustrations and restricted number of words per page have hugely enhanced her enjoyment of reading and she has flown through the books so far! Such a shame as the kindle was her birthday present last month... back to paper then!
