Liz Pichon is back with a brand new HILARIOUS Tom Gates book!

Liz will be joining us at Bookfest to talk about her greatest creation, Tom Gates – star of 10 books (and counting) and hero of school children everywhere. Find out more about where her characters came from, watch exclusive music videos of DogZombies and DUDE3, and even how to play the caramel wafer biscuit trick! Join Liz as she shows how to doodle like Tom Gates, and reads an extract from Super Good Skills (Almost...).

About the book:

This time Tom, Delia and the whole Gates family are going on holiday, but how will Tom manage to keep himself busy on the most boring campsite EVER? By doodling, of course! Who knew sticky notes could be so useful? They’re great for doodles, flipbooks and putting messages on people’s backs (sorry Delia)!

This exciting new book is perfect for SUPER Tom Gates fans and AMAZING doodlers as it includes loads of pages for kids to doodle on! This is the tenth book in the Tom Gates series, a perfect blend of illustrations and text, from award-winning and best-selling author Liz Pichon.
