Tom Gates, master of excuses, expert doodler, and hilarious story-writer, is going on a class trip!

Exciting News! Mr. Fullerman announces that we''re going on a class trip! Which should be fun. As long as I don''t get stuck in a group with anyone who snores or worse still, with . . . Marcus Meldrew. Delia is already threatening to paint my room funny colours while I''m away. Which is annoying. I just hope the only surprise I have when I get home is the new pet that I hear Mum and Dad talking about. Because I''ve always wanted a pet!

This fifth book in the award-winning Tom Gates series is packed with cheeky antics and hilarious doodles. Plus: a doodle-filled glossary will help Canadian kids make sense of British terms (what IS a caramel wafer, anyway?).
