A fun and easy read! The Brilliant World of Tom Gates is a fun easy to read fictional story about a fifth grade student named Tom Gates. He keeps a daily journal for writing and drawing about his school experiences and family adventures. Tom is often bored at school and makes funny creative excuses for not doing his homework assignments. At home, he likes to play jokes on his sister and spending time planning the future of his band called DogZombies. My favorite part of this book is Tom’s preparation and description of his family’s first outdoor camping vacation. They got lost while driving and get a flat tire. The family then gets caught in a rain storm and their tent blows away. The family was not happy with the campsite experience. I feel readers and students of all ages will enjoy the characters, illustrations and the imagination of Tom Gates. I’m giving a rating of five stars for The Brilliant World of Tom Gates.
