Product Number: EL14331
In Stock (Ships within 1-2 business days)
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? Students will love reading about Tom Gates as he tries to navigate the struggles of being in middle school as well as the everyday struggle of being a kid. Told with both text and illustrations, readers get an inside look at Tom’s thoughts and feelings. Hardcover. 368 pages.
