Similar in style to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, Tom Gates is a school kid who hates his teacher, one of the boys at his school and his older sister who is always being mean to him. The books are written from Tom's point of view and tells us all about his life at school. The way the book is printed makes it look like it is handwritten, with some of the words illustrated and some words written in different types of text.

The Tom Gates books are published in 36 different countries worldwide. They have also won fantastic awards too, including The Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2011, The Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2012, The Red House Book Award 2012 and The Blue Peter Book Award 2013.

The Brilliant World of Tom Gates, Pichon’s first Tom Gates book, was published by Scholastic in 2011 and has been followed by 11 others, with more than 2.6 million copies sold in the UK. The thirteenth book in the series, Tom Gates: Epic Adventure (kind of), is released tomorrow you can buy it from Amazon here.
