Product description

Stock up on Tom’s super-silly stories full of jokes, scribbles and doodles. Deliciously daft. Tom Gates is a master of excuses, expert doodler, story-writer extraordinaire and rock star in the making. Not to mention a Roald Dahl Funny Prize winner. His wacky journals are full of comic craziness to make you groan with glee. Unfortunately, those closest to Tom don’t always understand his genius. But although Tom’s life isn’t always easy, it IS snort-out-loud hilarious.
