Description
Middle-school comedian, homework dodger, rock-star wannabe, master doodler--Tom Gates is back with two more episodes full of visual humor and kid appeal. No school for two whole weeks! Now Tom has plenty of time for the good stuff, like finding new ways (so many!) to annoy his big sister, Delia. Or watching TV and eating caramel candy. Or most important, band practice for DOGZOMBIES in his best friend Derek's garage (while not encouraging Derek's '60s-music-crazed dad). All that stands between this band and rock greatness is, well, a song (besides "Delia's a Weirdo"). And finding a drummer. And landing a gig. Will Tom let a killer toothache and pesky overdue homework get in his way?

display_description "Tom has decided he wants to get the most gold stars in Mr. Fullerman's class, but he doubts things will go his way because Marcus cheats, his tooth aches, and Tom has much more important things to do than behave in school. Who can concentrate when you have a sister to annoy, bugs to catch, and swimming to do?"--Amazon.com.
